Comment(by dsd):

 I will check, but I think I trust what the above log says:

  1. The AP kicked me off
  2. wpa_supplicant blacklisted the AP temporarily, realised it had no
 other candidate networks to connect to, so unblacklisted it
  3. wpa_supplicant tried to associate again, the AP rejected us
  4. wpa_supplicant sat idle

 If the above is true (it probably is - this bug only appears on one
 certain AP), the behaviour up to this point is reasonable. The bad thing
 is that from this point onwards, my AP is no longer presented in the NM
 scan results, even though it is no longer on the blacklist.
