The second SSID in "hidden SSID" and you won't find it with ap_scan=1
when using NDIS drivers.

Not in this case. If you need to connect to a hidden SSID (including
this type of multiple SSIDs per BSSID cases), you will need to use
ap_scan=2 when using NDIS drivers (including the use via ndiswrapper).

No and no. It's a known limitation of function set in this type of
combination, not a bug..

NDIS interface does not support scan_ssid=1, so the only option is to
use ap_scan=2 and explicitly set the security parameters.
