You should not need to setup a sniffer for this.. hostapd log is clearly
showing an incoming deauthentication frame (with reason "STA is
leaving") from the station.. Anyway, I would welcome any new information
on this subject.

If only Supplicant in WinXP would give a bit more debugging information
to find out what is causing the problems.. If anyone happens to know a
way of configuring something like this or knows of a debug version of
that Supplicant, please do let me know. This would certainly make
debugging lot easier.
