No idea if you're still interested in seeing this resolved, but I have
the same hardware and noticed the same problem on Squeeze. (Squeeze is
still using 2.6.32.)

The bug in question was resolved in 2.6.36-rc1. I have filed a bug with
the patch, hoping it can be integrated in future update for Squeeze:

The bug only happens when both aes and tkip is used on the access point.
It can be worked around by either using a static address instead of
DHCP, or reconfiguring your AP to use either aes or tkip.
