Clearing the "Scan buffer": I continue to see an AP I've unplugged in the Scan Results

Supplicant begins and is instructed by a cli-style app to periodically
scan and scan_results.

It finds my AP.

I then unplug that AP.

The AP continues to appear in the scan_results list after subsequent
calls to scan and scan_results.

I can understand it remaining on perhaps for a scan or two after it
was unplugged, but it never seems to leave the list.

How to "reset" or empty the list or otherwise insure an accurate list
at all times?
