Subject: When BackgroundScanning = false, connman's Scan() dbus method is broken
I want to report an issue with connman. We set BackgroundScanning = false in main.conf.
However, I have found that this also causes connman to give an erroneous empty response to
the Scan() dbus call, potentially permanently disabling the device.

I can reproduce this issue. We wanted to disable BackgroundScanning as we support
a few wireless drivers that experience disruption to the connection when scanning
occurs. After disabling BackgroundScanning in ConnMan 1.34, we had numerous
reports of users unable to find any WiFi networks.
