Question on status-14 error

We've been doing some tests where we have lots of virtual stations on
a wave-2 9984 ath10k system, and another linux PC acting as an AP.  hostapd, supplicant,
and kernels should be fairly recent on all of these, but all of them are modified at least
a bit from stock software/firmware.

We are restarting the AP over and over and verifying that the
station system can properly reconnect.

After some time, we see the stations fail to connect, due to status-14.

I have uploaded a pcap here:

One example of this problem is in frames 76 and 77.

Frame 53 and 54 show what appears to be a successful auth attempt.

I have not dug into this in detail yet...but in case someone has
time to take a look, I'd welcome suggestions as to where the problem
might lie.
