With testing/wpa_actiond-1.4 I am having a minor problem when shutting down
net-auto-wireless.service: 'systemctl stop net-auto-wireless.service' pauses
for ~10sec before finally disconnecting. Of course, this also occurs on normal
system poweroff (which is usually ~5sec). The wifi network is WPA
"enterprise" (important entries in wpa_supplicant.conf: key_mgmt=WPA-EAP;
eap=PEAP; phase1="peaplabel=0"; phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"), and piece of
daemon.log after the above delay has elapsed:

Mar  3 17:08:39 bluemoon systemd[1]: Stopping Automatic netcfg wireless
connection service...
Mar  3 17:08:39 bluemoon wpa_actiond[380]: Interface 'wlan0' lost connection
to network 'lsusecure'
Mar  3 17:08:39 bluemoon netcfg-wpa_actiond[9323]: :: university-wifi down
Mar  3 17:08:39 bluemoon wpa_actiond[380]: Interface 'wlan0' disconnected from
network 'lsusecure'
Mar  3 17:08:39 bluemoon wpa_actiond[380]: Terminating wpa_actiond session for
interface 'wlan0'

This is not related to wpa_supplicant 2.0. In wpa_actiond git tree, there was
only 1 essential commit (baed7cae042ceb50507066f2df85b06414ab2176) which led
to v1.4, but I'm not sure what exactly causes this.

Since wpa_actiond doesn't have a --debug switch, how do I trace the issue?
