To quote 'repos/dde_linux/README':

  Per default, the driver scans for available networks only when not
  connected. This can be changed with the 'connected_scan_interval'
  config attribute, which specifies the interval for connected scans in
  seconds, e.g. […]

The driver is supposed to do that if you set the attribute. If it does
not, please file a bug report.
