No more space in this STA's PS mode buffer

i have a few AP's in downtown knoxville serving coffee houses.  i review 
the dmesg logs frequently to see what is going on.  every now and then i 
get this log messages.  usually follows a resetting of the AP card.  my ap 
is wmp11 pci card.  it would be much appreciated if someone could interpret 
this message for me.  what is PS mode buffer?  can i prevent this w/ some 
setting?  the results of this  are not horrible as only the client that 
causes this usually cannot get back on....everyone else is usually o.k. 
until i reboot the AP.  one time i was able to run down one of the clients 
on the wlan and beat him up and take his laptop.  i found a dwl-650 card 
inside if that helps at all.

dmesg log where the trouble starts:
