That doesn't say a lot, the "RUNNING" flag disappears when you
disassociate. I am out of ideas here.

Maybe you can get more info by putting
 WPA_OPTS="-d -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log"
into /etc/network.d/interfaces/wlan0. Or replace -d with -dd. But be
careful, the log file becomes HUGE with -dd.
