Comment(by andy):

 Not really excusing the behaviour, but two ideas:

 Signal quality reported for AR6000 driver is probably bogus.

 The firmware can choose to hide results from the iwlist eth0 scan.
 iwl4965 does this, sometimes to the point it gets confused and hides
 everything, but will connect by ap mac.  So it may not represent what it
 really sees there either.
