Comment(by werner):

 Indeed, there's some confusion in the Atheros stack about how the ESSID is
 passed and stored. It also gets confused if the ESSID has a length of 32
 bytes. This might be because the format of the data passed in the ioctl
 changed from including the final \0 to not including it anymore.

 I don't want to change this before having a better understanding of what's
 happening with the ESSID inside the stack. So I'd recommend, as a
 work-around, to avoid ESSIDs of length 1 or anything larger than 31 bytes.
