Sorry, I misread what you asked above. I meant that I am able to associate
if I avoid NM and wpa_supplicant alltogether and do this:

 # ip link set up dev wlan0
 # iwlist wlan0 scan
 # iwconfig wlan0 ssid morris1
 # iwconfig wlan0 key $wep_key
 # iwconfig wlan0 ap 00:30:BD:FD:B7:87

I am also able to associate if I tell NM to connect to the network and
then quickly issue just the 'iwconfig ap' command above.

I can try this for you if you let me know what commands to issue.
