Hi Bill!
I've been checking some stuff with the ipw2200-1.1.2 driver and i think
the problem you reported with association is that, at some point, the
driver(or ieee802211) starts sending "Scan request completed" events
continuosly. It seems wpa_supplicant restarts the association procedure
whenever it sees one of these events, so it keeps trying to restart the
association procedure.
IIRC there was a patch Jean Tourilhes sent that added that to the
driver(or ieee80211?). Anyway, i don't know what is the expected
behaviour from the driver, but wpa_supplicant probably shouldn't try to
restart the association procedure whenever it receives a "Scan request
completed" request (probably not every driver sends these events).
