I would need to see more detailed log (-ddt on command line) to be able
to tell what happened there. My guess would be that the driver reported
a disconnect event at that point and the reason for that would be
outside the scope of what wpa_supplicant is doing. In other words,
debugging this would likely require either getting debug information
from the driver/ndiswrapper and/or using a wireless sniffer to see
whether the AP is actually disconnecting the station at this point and
what was sent out just before the disconnection.
