Good people,

on my system (7.0-CURRENT as of 7/24 18:82 EST) following entry
in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf would cause wepkey 1 set and deftxkey set to
1.

network={
  ssid="MYSSID"
  scan_ssid=1
  priority=5
  key_mgmt=NONE
  wep_key0=11111111111111111111111111
  wep_tx_keyidx=0
}

consequently

network={
  ssid="MYSSID"
  scan_ssid=1
  priority=5
  key_mgmt=NONE
  wep_key1=11111111111111111111111111
  wep_tx_keyidx=1
}

would cause wepkey 2 to be populated and deftxkey set to 2.

I do not know whether this is by design or mistake, but I figured
posting it here just might save someone some frustration.
