Intermittent drops in wpa_supplicant (blacklist issue?)

I am having an issue where my connection drops every five to fifteen
minutes. When running with -d, everything comes up right but the first
sign of a problem is this message:

  setting scan request: 0 sec 100000 usec
  Added BSSID 00:0a:73:fd:a8:d8 into blacklist
  Disconnect event - remove keys
  wpa_driver_bsd_del_key: keyidx=0
  wpa_driver_bsd_del_key: keyidx=1
  wpa_driver_bsd_del_key: keyidx=2
  wpa_driver_bsd_del_key: keyidx=3
  addr=00:00:00:00:00:00 keyidx=0
  ioctl[SIOCS80211, op 20, len 7]: Can't
  assign requested address
  Starting AP scan (broadcast SSID)

The BSSID given is the one I have assigned to my AP. These messages are 
followed by numerous reconnection attempts (usually it is easier to just 
manually reconnect). Latencies are also very high but it might well be 
related to the same issue.  

This is over the ral driver (Zonet ZEW1501) on FreeBSD 6.0 R/amd64.  

I will post further debug messages if this is not a common problem, 
just let me know what you need to see.
