I was not trying any manual broadcast key settings, Since
I was under the impression that using 1X, we can set either
broadcast keys(-b) or Unicast keys(-i) or both(-b & -i).
So I started with -b13 option, but since -i13 option
failed, I didnot proceed further to try -b13 & -i13 on the
same command. Thankyou very much for your suggestion, 
I will try this now.

In Mobile IP scenario, Setting Broadcast key to the roaming
STA in the foreign n/w doesnot add any value, IMHO.

A small favor, Please CC me as I am only subscribed to the digest.
