NM should be storing the BSSID of the hidden network if you've ever
successfully connected to it.  Then, NM uses that to match up the hidden
scan result (the AP still shows up, just with a blank SSID) with the
real SSID.  Can you run:

iwlist wlan0 scan

when this happens to you and report the scan result for your AP?  Also,
does this connection have the "Available to all users" box checked in
