In addition to my other woes, I have a new site comming online and it 
looks like someone doesn't want me there. One sector of my AP, hostap 
0.1.3, is receiving bunches of frames that all have an incrementing BSSID 
.. check this out:

	At the sametime, hostap squirts out thousands of kernel messages 
per minute:

	Not doing any good for peformance. Also while sniffing in monitor 
mode 2, I get the following occasionally:

	And other garbage frames. If I put it into mode 3, then I get 
basiclly every type of frame that tcpdump can throw at me. Here's a
