Hi, List,

wpa_supplicant has problem to connect to a connecting available AP if
the AP is not in the
scanned result. 
This problem would happen in the environment with much APs over than about 20. 
The memory size of passing scanning result between wpa_supplicant and driver is 
4096, and the total number of APs can passed is only about 20.
Therefore, wpa_supplicant could not connect to a connecting available
AP if the AP is not in
the scanned result passed from driver.

Is it possible that wpa_supplicant tries to connect to target AP
regardless of scanning result?

Thanks.
YJ.
