Interesting.. It is unclear from those logs what exactly was causing the
problem in 0.7.3. The fixes I've done in 0.8.x branch should have
addressed somewhat different issues.

As far as testing of the current snapshot of the development branch is
concerned, that specific version is unlikely to have received much
testing since there was a change there today ;-). In general, I would
expect 0.8.x branch to be in much better shape as far as use of nl80211
and roaming is concerned.
