I don't think this is a wpa_supplicant issue; 0.6.9 should work fine
with this type of AP. However, the WLAN driver that is used here seems
to be unable to associate with the AP when requested to use WPA2-PSK.
The success case with WPA2-EAP removed shows that the exact same
sequence from wpa_supplicant requesting connection results in a
successful association, so I'd assume something about the AP's RSN
element information in the EAP+PSK case gets the driver confused. So
yes, looks like this won't be working unless you were able to update
that driver (and potentially firmware) with a fixed one.. In other
words, using two BSSes may be needed to get this working in practice
with that set of station devices.
