Wifi doesn't reconnect to AP if it uses the same SSID than another AP

My ISP (Free in France) provides a hotspot service so that customers
can use the connection of any other customer using a generic open Wifi
connection (for reference http://www.free.fr/assistance/2303.html - in
The SSID is called 'FreeWifi' on all the boxes but obviously APs are
all different since it's customers' DSL routers.
When I connect to one of this access point, suspend the phone and
resume it in another location where the SSID is available but from a
different AP, the phone doesn't connect to this AP and the list of
networks in the network-indicator doesn't refresh and still show the
list of network from the previous location. I have to forget the
network called 'FreeWifi' and reconnect in order to refresh the list
and make it work.
It's 100% reproducible.
