WPA-PSK problem on ARM

I recently read a couple of posts about possible endian-ness issues with
the WPA support on ARM. I've also come across a problem with WPA on ARM,
although I'm not sure if it's related...
I've just tried wpa_supplicant 0.2.4 and the 0.2.5 beta on an Ipaq
that's running a derivative of the latest handhelds.org
2.4.19-rmk6-pxa1-hh37 kernel, although I've dragged a lot of
2.4.26-and-beyond network and wireless card driver code into the tree.
While the hostap-driver works with an unencrypted base station, I
couldn't get wpa_supplicant to connect to a WPA-PSK base station. When I
rebuilt everything on an x86 box it connected fine. I was using a D-link
DWL-650 with station firmware 1.7.1.
During scanning wpa_supplicant decides to skip my AP, like this:
Received 262 bytes of scan results (1 BSSes)
Scan results: 1
Selecting BSS from priority group 0
0: 00:11:92:a1:92:a0 ssid='8021xtst' wpa_ie_len=0 rsn_ie_len=0
skip - no WPA/RSN IE
No suitable AP found.
Setting scan request: 5 sec 0 usec
... despite the fact that iwlist (from wireless_tools.27) shows a wpa_ie:
~/testing # iwlist wlan0 scan
Cell 02 - Address: 00:11:92:A1:92:A0
Does anyone have any ideas about what might be going wrong? (I've
attached more complete logs below). Or where I should start digging in
the source code?
(Aside: I'm intending to move to WPA2 with EAP and AES when I can find a
commercial base station that supports them... is the above problem
likely to reappear then?)
