That in fact used to happen severall times, if the wifi network was
not near enough it would be hard to connect to it, and if this patch
fixes its good knews in a way, but its not very good to loose the
ability to check wifi networks, but if you didnt find a better
intermediate point between loosing the wifi force and have better
connection its not me whos going to say otherwise, your the expert
here :)

But what happens now is that in NetworkManager i can see 3 wifi
networks, but if i run kismet or airodump-ng, it
can detect wifi networks that do not appear listed in NM.
