Comment 195 for bug 414560

On a slightly related note - I have a number of status update daemons on my network that send status updates using UDP broadcast. They generally only broadcast each update packet once. (UPS monitoring, a few other misc things.) With NetworkManager doing its periodic scans, these UDP broadcast packets are lost / not received on my laptop if they're sent while NM is scanning. This is extremely annoying, because that means I lose important information about the health of my network. The only way to get this data reliably is by turning off background scanning when the device is already connected.
