The reason for the NULL appears to be that nothing has ever called
nm_ap_security_set_key(). Is this a consequence of the nm-applet issues
you mentioned? I'm not manually doing anything, but I assume the applet
is what's telling NM to actually connect to my AP...

Interestingly, a message printed out a little earlier indicates it
thinks my AP is unencrypted, which is not the case. Could that be

NetworkManager: <info>  Activation (ath0/wireless): access point 'XXXXX'
is unencrypted, no key needed.

Thanks for the info! Update both network-manager-applet and NetworkManager and it should work now.
