I see similar issues and have opened a (maybe too general) ticket for 
that a while back: "Wifi flakey, wpa_supplicant sometimes crashing 
(#9694)" [1].
In my experience, as soon as I change stuff in the Networking 
preferences or try to connect via NetworkStatus in the Deskbar, things 
get messed up. What works for me:

* Make sure there's no file "/boot/common/settings/network/interfaces".
* Delete the ~/config/settings/system/keystore folder if it exists from 
previous experiments.
* Put "ifconfig [path-to-device] join [SSID] [password]" into the 
UserBootscript.
* Reboot.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Humdinger
