dhclient not working with wpa

Problem is that my wireless card doesn't see any replies from DHCP
server when I use wpa_cupplicant (it works fine without encryption),
even tho it is associated with that access point.
So it looks like the encryption bit is working but then dhclient fails.
If I turn the encryption off then dhclient works.
I've tried with isc dhclient both 31 and 41 versions. I've tried with
manually setting IP/netmask and route. Nothing helps, my FreeBSD box
just can't talk with the router over the wireless with encryption.
I know that the router is OK because other clients can get IP address
without any problems. I know that wireless card is OK because it works
with that access point from other operating systems, it also works with
other access points.
I guess it may be related to PR number 145269. But it's marked as
serious+open for a year now so maybe somebody got a working workaround?
Any suggestions please?
