Ok i have been using only kernel-3.3.4 (with compat wireless) and i
have been seeing a strange behaviour, it starts by detecting for
example 6 wifi networks and passed some time the 6 wifi become 1, and
passed a litle longer NetworkManager reaches the point of not showing
any Wifi network.
Then i restart wpa_supplicant and i get back 3 wifi networks.

With kernel-3.3.1 i dont remember this ever happened...
