In the released version of NM, it uses AP_SCAN 2 for hidden networks and rely on that to work, which it just doesn't in this case.

As to why we don't just use the AP_SCAN 1 "workaround" -> AP_SCAN 2 works for other drivers, it should work for the iwl4965 people too. This is a problem of fixing things in the place that need fixing, not working around thing everywhere else. That said - the workaround is a temporary solution if you need it *now*.
