Comment 19 for bug 1289047

I am still using the pinned-down version hostapd_1.0-3ubuntu2.1 which (seems to) work. If anyone lands here and it's stuck with the bug, here: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/06/how-to-set-up-wireless-hotspot-access.html you have the instruction on how to get it working.

Having it fixed for good would be nice, but the workaround does work, at least last time I checked.
