wpa_supplicant 0.5.7 and ndiswrapper 1.38 not working

I'm trying to use wpa_supplicant 0.5.7 with ndiswrapper 1.38 on Ubuntu
feisty along with the nm-applet.  I choose personal psk and put in my
key and get the kind of problem I previous wrote this list about here:

http://lists.shmoo.com/pipermail/hostap/2006-August/013802.html

It seems then it was due to using -D ndiswrapper rather than -D wext.
AFAICT though the NetworkManager tool on Ubuntu Feisty is using wext and
I am getting this problem.  Here is a dump of the ndiswrapper debug:

Hopefully there is no keying info in there.  :-)  I guess I can just
reset my key if there was.  dmesg tells me:

Any ideas what the problem could be?
