active scans stop background scans.

I'm using svn revision r2100 with one card and one station, no wep/wpa. In my situation, the signal from the ap is pretty weak which led me to discover this problem. It's reproducible by selecting a non existent essid: iwconfig ath0 essid notthere run 80211debug +assoc +scan +state and watch in syslog the background scan scroll by. Then do a iwlist ath0 scan and the background scans stop with a final 'ath0: notify scan done' in syslog. Doing a iwconfig ath0 essid notthere will start the scans again. Tobias.
