wpa_supplicant associates but dhcpcd cannot get IP address

Hello,

I've tried browsing the list archives and while I've found similar
issues with the same setup (D-Link G650 (atheros), madwifi and
wpa_supplicant) none of them reported the same issues I'm having now.
wpa_supplicant (with the -dd flag turned on, output below) seems to be
able to associate with my AP (essid "hinatasou") but dhcpcd fails to
get an IP. Here are the workarounds I've tried:

1) Tried latest stable, developmental and CVS versions of ndiswrapper.
None of them worked.
2) Ditched ndiswrapper and went for madwifi, tried the developmental
and CVS version, same result.
3) Tried both the stable and developmental versions of wpa_supplicant.

I can't help but feel that it's something wrong with how I have
wpa_supplicant set up. It's possible that dhcpcd is the culprit, but
I'm not sure if that's very likely.

My system:
Toshiba Satellite 1135-S155
Gentoo Linux 2.6.10-r7 with custom kernel
