Hostap (Managed Mode) Signal Quality Problem

I'm having trouble with the hostap-driver (v0.2.5) running in managed
mode where the signal quality values never seem to change when retrieved
via /proc/net/wireless interface, nor the SIOCGIWSTATS ioctl.
Sometimes they work ( ie. the values change over time ), but most of the
time, the values are static. The other values reported by the iwconfig
& /proc/net/wireless seem to update OK ( eg. discarded packets, etc... ).
I'm running a 2.4.20 kernel w/the WE15 patch on an Xscale CPU. I've
reproduced the problem with both a Gemtek CF card ( PRI=v1.1.0 /
STA=1.7.4) and a Linksys CF card ( PRI=v1.1.1 / STA=v1.8.0 ).
I added some printk's in the prism2_update_comms_qual() method to ensure
that the get_rid() call wasn't failing and that doesn't seem to be the
case. I also tried disabling the comms_qual_update task, but this had
not effect either.
I have not yet tried v0.2.6 yet, but plan to do so tomorrow.
Any help, and/or hints for further debugging would be most appreciated!
