After traffic runs for 20 mins, I see multiple "Wireless event: new AP:...."
wpa_supplicant( 5744): Wireless event: cmd=0x8b15 len=20
wpa_supplicant( 5744): Wireless event: new AP: 00:1e:13:84:29:33
Then disconnected after getting
wpa_supplicant( 5744): Wireless event: new AP: 00:00:00:00:00:00
I trace the wpa_supplicant source codes, see call trace is
wpa_driver_wext_init()==>wpa_driver_wext_event_receive()==>wpa_driver_wext_event_rtm_newlink()==>wpa_driver_wext_event_wireless()==> "new AP: ....".
Does it means it has second wpa_supplicant is executed? But "ps -A" does not show second wpa_supplicant.
Any help will be appreciated.
