That's a bug in the previous patch indeed.

I see, I'll try to come with something that can iterate on all groups or 
some sort.

Basically, what I want is in DBus API part to retrieve all group the 
peer is part of (as a client or a GO)
for that I need the wpa_s the group is related to to be able to provide 
the object path of the group then.

This patch, returning the interface address makes is flawed anyway, and 
as you said I need to loop
on all possible groups due to the multi group case.
