The lack of a proper API to the wpa_supplicant management interface
forces us to parse the output of the status notifications ourselves. The
notification in question looks like this:

<2>CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 00:11:22:33:44:55 completed
(reauth) [id=10 id_str=profile_name]

This format is about as primitive and broken as my parser. Given that
this is only a single line, the patch I'll send in a minute SHOULD solve
this, but I can't test this anytime soon.
