Maybe FreeBSD driver did not require that the management frames are
ACKed(?) If you want to test that, you could comment out following
block in both hostap_ap_tx_cb_auth() and hostap_ap_tx_cb_assoc():

    if (!ok) {
	txt = "frame was not ACKed";
	goto done;

Increasing ACK timeout would be better solution, but I don't know
whether it can be done without modifying the station firmware code.
