This configuration is correct.

I was able to reproduce this issue on one of my boxes - apparently,  
killing and restarting hostapd (with the same config) makes it work  
(clicking the Save button on the corresponding interface  
configuration page in the webGUI achieves the same thing). I can't  
see why this happens though, unless there's a bug in hostapd. And  
it's not related to the choice of WPA version, ciphers, or bridging  
(vs. routing) either. Maybe it's got something to do with the order  
in which things are initialized on boot...

I'm not in a position to debug this at the moment, so if anybody else  
wants to give it a shot - please step forward.
