engage:  Is the Windows 2000 "Wireless Configuration" service disabled,
or is it running?  (Even when we set it to manual, it still starts on
boot.  When using the wpa_supplicant windows port on 2000, we have to
disable it.)

We've seen some *very* odd behavior when this service is running -- it's
like it tries to restart EAP after the supplicant finishes, but it has
no configuration, so it always fails.  Which makes authentication
usually fail, too, although sometimes wpa_supplicant does another round
of EAP traffic and gets the connection to come up.
