That's somewhat surprising.. Would you mind testing whether you can
reproduce the issue by setting it back to 14 and recompile? I fixed
number of things with scanning and all the tests I have done seemed to
indicate that the new version works fine.

Which station firmware are you using? Which kernel version? Which
compiler version? Which CPU?
