I'm also using the ndis driver for my Broadcom Wireless adapter, but
I'm not seeing this problem when wpa_supplicant.

The only ESSID messages I see are:

hp010# dmesg | grep ESSID
Setting ESSID to ""
Setting ESSID to ""
Setting ESSID to "TimeMachine"

hp010# uname -a
FreeBSD hp010 8.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT #0: Fri Nov 16 03:09:18
CST 2007     root at hp010:/usr/src/sys/amd64/compile/GENERIC.debug
amd64

I'm using version 4.40.19.0 of the broadcom ndis driver from:

 ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33001-33500/sp33008.exe

This file contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit ndis drivers.

Where did you obtain your bcmwl5.sys file from?  What version are you using?
