The following is an indication about yet another MLME problem:

Two APs, both set to the MNHS/WPA.

Let wpa_supplicant associate. Turn one AP off. wpa_supplicant
automatically associates to the second.

Now turn the first AP on again. Issue a manual scan command:

The "Association request to the driver failed" will
be shown even without "-d". Also note that the association
seems to actually work, e.g. I can ping throught the
connection.
