The attack is not related to an reused IV. This attack works fine if 40,000 packets have been collected, even if not a single one uses an IV which had been used previously. Some 802.11 stacks use a monotonic counter for IV generation, which will never repead an IV in less than 2^24 packets. Even if such a counter is used, this attack will work perfectly.
