Oh?  I'm sitting here watching the tty0 screen of my lappy after x has 
been started, and I have established a connection, but SoftMAC is still 
logging its scan activity, starting with channel 1 and scanning 14 
channels.  Its doing this at approximately 2 minute intervals.  So I 
think we have your definition of a clear bug and misbehaviour.

Cheers, Gene
