WPA_SUPPLICANT: PBC overlapped sessions

WPS Spec 1.0h (sec10.3) says, "During this scan, the Enrollee MUST abort
its connection attempt and signal a "session overlap" error to the user
if it discovers more than one Registrar in PBC mode."


But as per my understanding of the WPA_Supplicant 0.6.10 code, the above
requirement is not getting handled. Instead once the supplicant detects
a PBC overlap, its waiting for 10sec and starts scanning again for AP,
instead of aborting the connection. 


Could you please clarify on this.
