I've been exploring this a little further.
I wonder if the actual bg scan task is stuck - even though scan
start/end is being called correctly inside scan_task(), I wonder if
something is trampling over the flags at the same time and causing
scan_task() to think another scan is coming, but never does.
A bgscan should be occuring every X seconds though. So I wonder why it
wouldn't next be running.
So would you mind plugging it back in and having it fail, then once it does:
wlandebug +power +scan
And then let's see if it actually _does_ try to do background scanning
once it's hung. I hope it prints something useful about why it isn't
