There exist 2 problems in the qmi proto handler:
1. Setting the plmn to 'auto' will implicitly lead to a (delayed)
network re-registration, which could further lead to some timing
related issues in the qmi proto handler.
Let me explain this in more detail:
After successfully calling the uqmi --set-plmn (auto) command it takes
up to 5 (or maybe even more) seconds until the modem detaches from
and start searching for new registration.
In the meantime the proto handler goes through the next steps ("Waiting
network registration", "Start network $interface" etc.).
I hope you can see were this leads to.
This is really a problem in Roaming scenarios, where to provider maybe
switched after the re-registration.
2. The plmn setting is permanently saved in the wwan modem:
This leads to the problem, that if you switch back from manual plmn
to auto mode you have to set it explicitly to 'auto'.
