It does, but wpa_cli used to filter out extra disconnection events,
i.e., this would be delivered to the action script only if there was a
connection event before this during the lifetime of the wpa_cli process.
I changed this now to allow the initial disconnection event to be
indicated for the case where wpa_cli was started while wpa_supplicant
was in connected state.
