Problem with madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-current when two virtual interfaces are up

Description

I created two virtual interfaces on top of wifi0. One interface, which I named ath0, operates in ahdemo mode. Another interface, which I named mon0, operates in monitor mode.

The problem goes like this:

Packets are received on mon0. However, IP packets are not received on ath0 (I used an application that uses a UDP socket to receive packets from ath0). When I ran tcpdump, I could see that packets are being received on ath0. My suspicion is that the packets are somehow dropped along the IP stack but can't figure out exactly why.
