Enabling WPA/WPA2 countermeasures hangs system

Issuing the command "iwpriv ath0 countermeasures 1" hangs the system. Fedora core 5 kernel version 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5, using wpa_supplicant with WPA/TKIP.

Same problem with Ubuntu Edgy Eft (using Debian kernel 2.6.18).

By the way the connection seems very difficult to establish, sometimes it works well (exept the random system hang) and sometimes it is impossible to get connected, wpa_supplicant seems quite ok, but ping returns a "network is unreachable" message.
