Trying to connect to network with LEAP authentication

My university's wireless network uses LEAP
authentication. It has assigned me a user name and
password, and I can use these to access the network
with Windows XP booted on my laptop, but I have had no
luck with Linux so far. My wireless card is an
Intel/Pro Wireless 3945 (ipw3945). My distro is
Ubuntu. The domain name of the network is UANET, and
the ESSID is "tsunami." I did not need this
information, though, to connect to the network on
Windows. The drivers appear to be correctly installed
(?). The ipw3945d daemon runs in the background as it
should, and "sudo iwlist eth1 scan" brings up a list
of networks. OTOH, running "sudo iwlist eth1 ap" gets
me "eth1 Interface doesn't have a list of
Peers/Access-Points".

This is my config file,
/home/jjramsey/Wireless-stuff/mywpasupp.conf (except
the password is X'd out):

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0

eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1

network={
        ssid="tsunami"
        key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
        eap=LEAP
        identity="jjr19"
        password="XXXX"
}

This is the output from running "sudo wpa_supplicant
-c/home/jjramsey/Wireless-stuff/mywpasupp.conf -ieth1
-Dwext -dd":

Is there something obviously wrong with my configuration?
