If you can reproduce that, I would like to see wpa_supplicant debug log
with timestamps showing what happened. wpa_supplicant should be able to
recover from mismatching authentication state after the scan. If not,
that part needs to be fixed instead of extending the SME auth timeout to
cover something else than actual authentication request.
