It looks like this crack is only for one of the keys used by WPA-TKIP, but I'm not sure if it's the base key or the "per packet" key. I would guess it's the base key; I'm not sure of what use it is to know that key if you still can't decrypt the packet's payload. I'll be interested to seeing the full report.
