These lines do not occur on APs that do not have issues, so I'm thinking this is linked somehow.  For the inquisitive, I'm using hostapd 2.1-devel on OpenWRT.

I think this means the hostapd thinks it was asked to deauth the station

Perhaps due to inactivity or something like that?

Maybe increase verbosity of the logs and see if there is any
reason given?
