I don't think ipw2200 driver (or at least the driver interface in
wpa_supplicant) supports scanning for specific SSID. If the driver
supports association without wpa_supplicant selecting the BSSID, you
could try ap_scan=2 to skip the scanning part. Another test could be to
manually configure the SSID before doing the scan. I don't have test
setup with ipw2200 (or ipw2100 for that matter), so I don't know whether
either of these actually works. The ipw2200 mailing list could be more
fruitful target for this question.
