Sending with what? Host AP driver should not be sending Mgmt::0 (association request) frames, so I assume you are using some sort of frame injecting(?) RetryErr means that the card did not receive ACK for the frame from the destination (addr1 in that message). Did you have an AP with that address and was addr1 == addr3 in that frame?
