iwpriv maccmd does not filter

I have tried filtering mac addresses with iwpriv on the following setup:

kernel 2.4.17
pcmcia-cs-3.1.31 (external)
D-Link DWL-650 cards in access point and two clients

My clients lose sync with the access point when they are kicked, but then they immediately renegotiate! For example , I would think that the following two commands would lock out all clients from my access point:

# iwpriv wlan0 maccmd 2
# iwpriv wlan0 maccmd 4

But when I do this, I see my win2k and linux clients drop one ping as they disappear from /proc/net/prism2/wlan0, but then they immediately reappear and keep pinging! Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
