Comment(by dsd):

 Through inspection, I think the bug is in NetworkManager nm-device-wifi.c

         /* Remove whatever access point we used to be connected to from
 the list
          * since it failed and might no longer be visible.  If it's
 actually still
          * there, we'll find it in the next scan.
         if (priv->current_ap) {
                 ap = priv->current_ap;
                 priv->current_ap = NULL;
         } else
                 ap = nm_device_wifi_get_activation_ap (self);

         if (ap)
                 remove_access_point (self, ap);

 I think the first comment there is not totally correct, and you can see at
 the end that the AP is removed from the list via remove_access_point.
