What worked for me is "associating with the access point manually",
i.e., ifconfig the interface, do dhcp (you won't get an address)
- iwlist scan
- iwconfig <wireless-interface> ap <mac-of-ap>
- rerun dhcp 
It seems there's something broken with the ap selection code, but I
didn't get around to figure out what exactly.
