Could you please confirm with build 695? I guess driver in build 695 sends down deauth command, which disables beacon, before enabling monitor mode.

695 was the build I used in the test.

Firmware version 22.p8 fixes this. But since this firmware is still not approved (see #6854), I will keep this open until we have the fix in an approved release.
