Fixed. There was logical AND (&&) instead of bit AND (&).

Works for me. Take note that d-feet doesn't show properties which value
is zero or false. If you run wpa_supplicant with -dd option then all
debug properties are zero or false. Try using other DBus debugger like
qdbusviewer or get these properties some other way then with d-feet.

Fixed. The sent signal was correct. The introspection data was wrong.
Thanks and happy new year,
