I've updated the firmware (not permanently only to RAM) to 1.7.4, and the
behavior persists.

About the back-off window, which was my second alternative to try to make
the test work with 10 nodes, I found this:
http://lists.shmoo.com/pipermail/hostap/2003-June/003082.html
which seems to show that it's not possible to set up the size of the back
off window.

I'll then have to perform the tests with less nodes, where that behavior
was much less frequent.

Thanks again for your help.
