In my case wpa_supplicant always was running; it is launched by
at home where I have this problem the association is WEP based;

wpa_supplicant seems picking up the wrong foreign AP; it triggers even
on LINK_UP via the devd(8) my script which I have to assign IP or do
DHCP according the AP-location, which of course does not know this
foreign AP and does nothing, but I see it in the log:
Wed Sep 3 07:07:49 CEST 2008: /usr/local/etc/devd/iwi.sh iwi0 LINK_UP
AP [00:19:cb:86:b3:84] not known in /usr/local/etc/devd/iwi.sh
I will try to collect a debug-log of wpa_supplicant for such a situation;
