Bug Description

If I right click on menu "wireless network" in nm-applet causing to turn off wireless network, and later I check it again to turn it on - Network Manager is unable to reconnect to my access point. The same problem occurs when I restart service by hand:
# service NetworkManager restart
until I restart system I am unable to connect to WPA2 network.

Access point: Dlink DWL-900AP+
Operating mode: Access Point (Managed), WPA-PSK
Rate: 1-2-5-11mbit (802.11b)
Long Preamble, SSID Broadcast Enabled.

I attached logs from wpa_supplicant - during connection to my SSID=1MKAP
