Oops, that one is still sat in my patches to clean up list. 

I didn't think that a GET_LOG call occurred in association but if you
hit it whilst trying to associate, my guess is something has changed
in wireless tools.

The patch in question was meant to address some issues when getting
signal strength readings but I never really considered what else might
trigger it.
