Can you post some supplciant debug logs showing this?  If this MAC is
being returned in scan results, then it's clearly a driver error.  If
it's the supplicant reporting "COMPLETED to 00:00:00:00:00:00" or
something like that during association then it could be a supplicant or
driver problem.

Debug logs would allow us to narrow this down a bit more.
