After some more thought and experiments with this, I agree that we
should not trigger a new scan based on the initial signal change event
that is indicated immediately after the threshold value is configured.
However, that event should still update the bgscan interval and I don't
think that we should skip the signal change events for the full short
interval after initialization. 

I used a bit different approach on achieving the skipping of the new
scan (which I believe was the main operation you wanted to avoid here)
while still using the signal change events:

Please let me know if this does not resolve the issue for you.
