Thanks. It looks like the 4-way handshake goes fine without any
problems, but after that, wpa_supplicant does not receive the first
encrypted frame (group key handshake message 1/2). The capture file
shows the encrypted frame, so I would assume that the driver code in the
client dropped it for some reason. One would likely have to debug the
driver/firmware operations to figure out why that happened.

The capture file shows a bit odd TKIP behavior from the AP. It starts
with a large (random looking) TKIP IV even though this would normally
start from zero. In theory, this should work fine, but I have no idea
whether the particular driver you are using could reject such a frame.
