No, that does not sound intended.

Thanks, applied.

> When two devices are connected (the first one is GO and the second one is p2p_client)  they don't send Probe Requests/Responses beetwen each other and it is a root cause that they are removed from list of peers. Is it correct? Maybe these devices should be kept on the list during connection?

It would sound reasonable to maintain the entries through the connection
and P2P_PEER_EXPIRATION_AGE seconds after the connection has been lost.
