Problems getting xsupplicant to work with LEAP

    I'm on SuSE 9.2 and having issues getting xsupplicant 1.0.1 to work
    with LEAP. The adapter is the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 (ipw2100). LEAP
    works fine with Windows, so I copied down the settings shown in Windows
    for the Linux config. Windows is using WEP and 'Open' for auth mode.
    I also made a note of the AP MAC.

    The first thing I find strange is that I'm unable to use iwconfig to
    set up the AP MAC for the interface. I type "iwconfig <if> ap
    <ap-mac>" and get no errors, but iwconfig always returns zeros for the
    AP MAC when I run iwconfig afterwards to list out the parameters. AP
    being all zeros is one of the things xsupplicant complains about.
    Tracing its log output, looks like it just doesn't see the frames.
    Any ideas?
