[Bug 1206367] [NEW] radclient fails to validate Message-Authenticator on Disconnect-ACK packets

Public bug reported:

When I send a "Disconnect-Request" to a Hostapd instance, it sends back
a "Disconnect-ACK" packet with a Message-Authenticator set.

However, radclient thinks the value of this Message-Authenticator is
invalid (because it doesn't check properly).

This bug has been fixed in upstream version 2.2.0.

A patch is discussed here:
