Crap, spoke too soon -- not long after I wrote this email, my old

So I should say, "no regressions" :-)

I'm seeing a significant regression:

My ath0 will now completely stop working after about 5-10 minutes. I
have to ifconfig down/up and restart wpa_supplicant.

Does it stop working exactly when the first GTK rekeying takes place?
If yes, it's probably the same problem I'm trying to debug ATM (using
hostapd(8) and wpa_supplicant(8) with ath(4) on NetBSD/i386 current).

I have no idea. Is there an easy way to check?

wpa_cli's `status' command just says COMPLETED, I think.

Reverting to wpa_supplicant 0.4.9 made everything better again (I've
been using it without issue for months).

The problem I'm seeing also occurred with 0.4.9, but far less often
than with 0.6.2.

I've never had any issues with 0.4.9. My laptop has run without problem with multi-week uptimes.

ath0 does timeout a lot (and I commented out the printf in the driver), but appears to work fine (or well enough) regardless.
