My shot from the hip, although I'm pretty much away from this stuff at 
the moment.

ath0 is IFT_ETHER, so it should be OK to attach it to the bridge -- 
although you won't
get the 802.11 frames bridged.

Could be that for whatever reason, bridge fails to put ath into 
promiscuous mode. Try turning on the dev.ath.0.debug sysctl taps and/or 
watch what src/tools/tools/ath/athdebug/athdebug.c does...
