WPA works for me with windows xp own supplicant. Rekeying works since
3 days. No connection drop after reauth/rekeying. Sometimes keyexcange
fails (4-Way-Handshake), i guess packet lost, but winxp can
reauthenticate without problems.

WPASupplicant has also problems with reauth/rekeying sometimes. After
it fails and WPASupplicant wants to connect it didn't get group keys and
after a timeout (about 45 seconds) WPASupplicant disconnects. It seams
that in state PTKINITDONE sm->PInitAKeys is not set to TRUE!

At the moment setting eap_reauth_period to short values is dangerous!
