The fast_reauth=1 case is expected behavior. fast_reauth=0 should use
new credentials, but it looks like you did not actually ask
wpa_supplicant to read the new configuration.. Just modifying
wpa_supplicant.conf is not going to change anything in the running
process without explicit request to re-read the configuration.
