I think you should try with client auth disabled, because you have
disabled similar sounding setting (Client Cert) from Network Manager.

I'm not aware of any big problems with WPA authentication. With EAP
there's always a Radius server involved, so maybe this is a some kind
of interoperability problem with the Radius server?

If you have the time, I would appreciate if you could file a bug
report to bugzilla. Try to include as much as information as possible.
