Oh, thanks for this, but please take at least 10secs to check wether
there are no other border cases. It *is* working in my setting, but I
couldn't test it with other cases. I just checked the messages of
wpa_supplicant -dd, got the function which is called for getting AP, and
added this one loop. Maybe there are other places where something
similar should be added.

Concerning * vs something else: Does this mean we will have to add
something like
or leave out the ssid entry completely?

Best wishes
