A bare run script with a wifi_drv on top of many inits gives the
reattempted PD session too, as well as rom_session denied errors for
boot modules. Which errors it gives seems to be dependant on the length
of the label. This confirms it, since the session request with the
longer labels seem to be rejected.

In that case I will try to perhaps move init_wifi down one or two
levels, see if that works.

Thanks for your reply.

P.S. Perhaps it would be nice if the session arguments are actually
checked for length and a warning is given if they do not fit into the
rpc buffer? It took me some time to identify the problem in this case.
