"genlop -l --date yesterday" is always a good place to start. I knew
this wasn't down to wpa_supplicant as I got it this morning on a
wirelessless desktop. Genlop showed that openrc was updated yesterday and
searching bugzilla for openrc found https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=417227

It appears that a fix has been committed.

Default wpa_supplicant annoyances (mask_service_inactive)

Hi again.

This is just a desktop that's on a remote corner. Some months ago I
decided to clean a bit and take off some wires, and I am using an usb
wifi dongle to connect it to my lan, just because that's what I had at
hand at the moment, lying in some drawer.

Thank you, it's exactly my problem. Poor wpa_supplicant, it seems it's
not guilty after all. :P

Well, thank you a ton. I can go from here myself.
