Unfortunately, yes. I tried vanilla 1.6, spikes still happen.

Updated to version 1.6.0. Does anyone know if this is still required? They might have fixed the bug, I don't really know...

Yep, just like the blog post says, it is not good for roaming. Unfortunately.

I didn't know about that solution. It is a good solution for home, but it is unconvenient for many other situations. E.g. I work at the University, and we have eduroam-based connection. That means that we have tens of APs with the same SSID. I want that when I'm sit on my desk scanning is not working. But I also want that when I move to a different room, the computer associates with a different BBSID, and still does not scan :)

You can find similar situations in public transports, city-wide connections, and hotels!

I don't know if it is less or more convenient than this package depending on the situation, but there is an official way to prevent NM from scanning every 2 minutes once a particular WIFI connection is established.

You have to set the BSSID of the access point in the connection settings.

I had the hope that since they claim scanning has changed in this version, our problem was fixed in 1.2, but no :(.

Please, report any problem.

Couldn't get it to work when trying what you suggested, so I just went with this:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/OpenVPN#Letting_NetworkManager_start_a_connection
I was sort of using this before, but without NM controlling the connection. That ended up sometimes messing up with my boot/shutdown times because the connection wasn't terminated properly. The above solution works well and it is my home PC anyways, so I don't mind setting it up for specific connection name.
