help! wpa_supplicant with WEP never associates, just timeout-loops

I have a fairly vanilla system: FC3, madwifi running pretty standard on
a Compaq Evo N610c. ath0 associates just fine without wpa_supplicant
with an access point using WEP shared keys and ifup, specifying the
I cannot get wpa_supplicant to associate, however. It finds the
access point and tries to associate, but times out and loops retrying.
Here is the output from wpa_supplicant 4.1 (3.8 does the same thing),
followed by my network block. (the same thing also happens on my
x86_64 laptop with both ndiswrapper and madwifi).
Please help with some suggestions for what to look at, I've looked at
zillions of things, including coding a really long (60 sec) timeout!
I'm hardly a newbie to computing or Linux, but I'm a complete newbie to
wpa_supplicant, and this is just frustrating. I really want to shift my
setup to wpa rather than WEP, but this doesn't give me much confidence
that wpa_supplicant will work for me.
