Looking through my syslog it seems that those re-associations only happen
while the system is idling (no network traffic at all)
For testing purposes I left the notebook running this afternoon
without doing anything.
I noticed that the master machine started dropping and re-associating the notebook
in a pattern.
5 minutes connection,re-associate, 10 minutes con, re-associate, 5 min, re, 10 min......
Yeah, I know what you think right now Jouni. WTF????????????? ;)

I patched my AP and notebook and start idling after sending this mail.
