Thanks for the reference.

Well, I guess they really do mean "disconnect" in the case of PPP.

It's an artifact of the 802.11 state machine, which in 802.11-2003
includes a link layer "authentication" frame that is not used by 802.1X
(or at least 802.1X operates after "open" authentication). The bottom
line is that the STA is still Associated after failing 802.1X
authentication and can attempt 802.1X authentication again.
