wireless option hidden is ignored

Reported by: gerd94706@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Kamikaze 8.09

I'm using Kamikaze 8.09 on a Linksys WRT54G v3.
Setting "option hidden 1" has no effect.
The SSID is broadcasted regardless of what's configured.

I can't verify this problem. After setting hidden 1, the essid indeed still appears a little while in wifi scan results of a near ap but now I only see the hidden network by searching for it's bssid, the essid is empty - as expected.

I attached my minimal test configuration below.

root@OpenWrt:~# cat /etc/config/wireless 
config wifi-device  wl0
	option type     broadcom
	option channel  5

	#option disabled 1

config wifi-iface
	option device   wl0
	option network	lan
	option mode     ap
	option ssid     blah
	option encryption none
	option hidden   1
