Please send more verbose debug log (i.e., add -dd to the command line).

At least the initial connection worked fine, so the basic functionality
seems to be available.

This is most commonly triggered if the driver does not report
disconnection to the supplicant. More verbose debug could help in
figuring out whether that is the case, but one may need to take a look
at wireless capture log of the frames sent at this point to figure out
what exactly happened unless the driver provides useful debug
information about associations.
