hostapd not supporting

How can I use hostapd without authentication.
I've tried a lot of stuff but was not able until yet.

auth_algs=1 (OpenSystem)
ieee8021x=0
wpa=0

wpa_key_mgmt=NONE
gives config error
wpa_pairwise=NONE
gives
"Unsupported pairwise cipher suite ..."

I've found in config.c some check arround line 985 hostapd-0.4.3
that checks WPA_CIPHER_NONE, WPA_CIPHER_WEP40 and WPA_CIPHER_WEP104
which prints this message "Unsupported pairwise cipher suite ..."

wpa_supplicant is configured
       ssid="XXX"
        key_mgmt=NONE
and works fine with StarOS configure as AP.

Does hostapd not support connections without authentiations?
