FWIW... I set my AP to broadcast the ssid.  It then quickly associated 
with it.  But then dhclient 'broke the association' when it tried to 
acquire a lease (I have removed the media lines from dhclient.conf)? 
and subsequent wpa_supplicant attempts would no longer detect or 
associate with the AP... till I reboot.

Attached is that log.

What else can I provide to help.
