No it doesn't, but the problem does seem to be passing
through this code. The ssid_len is set to 8 (same as NM
sees), but custom appears to be an empty string.

I guess this points to a possible driver bug, so I'll try
update those just in case, see if that helps...

Incidentally, NM is currently running fine with the attached
patch applied, filtering out the obviously bad item. Would
you want to apply it as a form of idiot-proofing, or do you
prefer to just rely on drivers (and wpa_supplicant) not
providing bad data?
