Ndiswrapper and virtual interfaces - WPA_supplicant can't associate

I have a TrendNET 421PC and a Prism2 based card.
I use a Linksys WRT54GL 1.0 router with DD-WRT and a virtual interface
using WPA. (another with WEP, but it's for WDS)
Wpa_supplicant claims not to find the appropriate SSID although it
shows it in the debug output.
It works perfectly in Windows XP (no WPA_SUPPLICANT, same machine) and
no change (apart from interface name) is needed to use the prism based
I use FC7 with reconfigured kernel (the 4K issue) with native versions
of all the tools.
Tried the ap_scan option, it didn't work any better.
The problem exists only with the second interface, not the first.

A while ago I had a different router configuration and couldn't
connect to a "hidden" SSID at all.
appreciate your help...
