You need some fixes to wpa_supplicant and the kernel wireless stack,
which you should probably poke your distro about shipping.  The required
kernel patches are in 2.6.26 already and are pretty easy for your distro
to backport.  The patches are:

[PATCH] wpa_supplicant: give adhoc associations a bit more time
[PATCH v2] wext: handle mode switches correctly for mac80211

kernel (wireless-testing.git):
872ba53395b2a8be08c3ea2d39e225e5b4a8cb40 mac80211: decrease IBSS creation latency
507b06d0622480f8026d49a94f86068bb0fd6ed6 mac80211: send association event on IBSS create
