madwifi-ng fails to send 'connect' signal in time

Description

I am running 64-bit Fedora 8 on a 2007 Macbook (with an AR5418 chipset), and am using the madwifi-ng driver from SVN. When using wpa_supplicant, I am able to successfully connect to the network (encryption is WPA). However, when using NetworkManager the authentication phase times out, giving the following in /var/log/messages:

NetworkManager: <info> Activation (ath0/wireless): association took too long, asking for new key.

Searching around on the web, I find that the cause for this is that the driver is not sending the 'connect' signal in time:

This behavior has occurred across multiple SVN revisions.
