Well... after sniffing some EAP-Frames it looks like
that madwifi's stack or  their driver has problems with fragmentation,
because the "Server Certificate" in the EAP gets truncated.

So, I my theory is this:
wpa_supplicant does the right thing by dropping the connection,
since it can't verify if the server certificate is valid or not.

Unfortunately, I don't have any backups of my old working setup,
so I don't really know which was the last madwifi-revision
where everything worked well...
