I've had the same problem with ipw0 until my thinkpad burst into flames. A
workaround is something like this:
# ifconfig wpi0 up && sleep 3 && ifconfig wpi0 list scan
On a sidenote, with RELENG_7 WPA finally started working for ipw on my system
(which so shortly after the transition burst into flames).
