Second BSSID not added to bridge correctly?

I'm trying to play with the multiple BSSID feature and it seems like the
"bridge" option is ignored for the additional BSSID?

Slightly abbreviated config is:


interface=wlan0
bridge=br0
driver=nl80211
ssid=MyBox
wpa=3
wpa_passphrase=passw0rd
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP

bss=wlan0_0
ssid=MyBox_open
bridge=br0
wpa=0


What I observe is that wlan0 is added to the bridge, but not wlan0_0?

As expected, when I connect to the "_open" network I can't talk to other
traffic on the bridge

Manually adding wlan0_0 to the bridge using brctl gets everything
working fine


Is this a known problem or my config wrong?  (Hostapd 0.7.3)

Additionally when I stop hostapd all my wlan devices disappear (no more
wlan0), and I am unable to start hostapd until I manually bring up the
interface again (ifconfig wlan0 up).  Is this expected behaviour?


Thanks
