Do you run a p2p-action script on the p2p main interface?
It'll take care of managing a newly created groups and
you can even setup up cross-connections automatically.
The "wpa_supplicant/examples/p2p-action.sh" [1] [2]
script for wpa_cli action mode shows how you can use
dnsmasq and dhclient to do this automatically based on
P2P-GROUP-STARTED events. To use it, just execute:

wpa_cli -i $WLANX -a full-path-from-root-to/p2p-action.sh -B

right after you've started wpa_supplicant (but before
any p2p client can connect).
