Locking to a specific ap

I'm using the hostap drivers on my laptop in managed mode, because I 
find them to be more stable than the current crop of wlan-ng drivers. 
One problem I'm having is, when I'm near two access points with the same 
essid and similar power levels, my system flips back and forth between 
them as the signal strength varies. I've tried messing with iwpriv to 
try to lock myself to a specific AP based on its bssid, but I've had no 
luck so far. Is there actually a way to do this, or am I SOL? I'm using 
the Senao 200mw prism2 card.

Thanks in advance,

/Owen
