Yes. icd issues WLAN scans only when there isn't any connection

If you ask if it's possible to do a WLAN scan when BT DUN is active
then yes, that is possible. BT DUN connection will stay up even though
you issue a WLAN scan.

Actually you can test this yourself. Start BT DUN connection and
choose change connection from Connection Manager. You will see WLAN
scan results but BT DUN connection should still work normally. If not,
that's a bug.
