Any chance you could whip up a wpa_supplicant config file for your
network situation, and use wpa_supplicant standalone (without
NetworkManager)?  Make sure to use "-ddd" to get the maximum logging

the command should go something like this:

/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -ddd -iath0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dmadwifi

If that fails, then it's 95% likely a madwifi-ng bug and something they
broke recently.
