P2P: legacy devices regularly disconnect

I'm trying to get a setup working which has both P2P and legacy clients. I use
the following configuration:
? ? ? ? mode=3
? ? ? ? disabled=2
? ? ? ? ssid="DIRECT-GO-test"
? ? ? ? frequency=5180
? ? ? ? key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
? ? ? ? proto=RSN
? ? ? ? pairwise=CCMP
? ? ? ? psk="mysecret"
I then run wpa_supplicant with:
wpa_supplicant -Dnl80211 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlan0 -B
and configure the P2P with:
wpa_cli -i wlan0 p2p_group_add persistent=0 freq=5180
This seemed to work at first since both P2P and legacy clients see the network
and can connect to it. I then noticed, that the legacy devices get disconnected
regularly after ~5-10 seconds and reconnect again afterwards. Running
wpa_supplicant with the "-dd" option does not reveal any activity, neither does
the syslog. If I constantly ping a connected device, it does not disconnect
though until I stop pinging.
Any ideas on what could be wrong?
Thanks for any help!
