Ah, ok, that probably explains it.  I think there is an outstanding issue
with the default rateset in wpa_s not matching that of the in-kernel
peering manager.

You can set user_mpm = 0 in wpa_s will use the kernel MPM in both cases,
and that should work.  If not, let us know.  In the meantime I'll take a
stab at fixing this issue.
