I asked for confirmation in IRC and soma was kind enough to test but failed to verify the problem. He mentioned the possibility of some funny character in the essid of a neighboring cell wreaking havoc and indeed I have two AP with both spaces and ' in their essid. I unscrewed the antenna on the device to drop out of their reach. "iwinfo wlan0 scan" no longer listed them, but the problem in luci persisted.

I'm very sorry to say but this was again a false alarm as I learned in IRC. I happily flashed from kernel 2.4 to 2.6 today -> bug 8941. What I apparently should have done but didn't is untick the box "Keep settings" when flashing the new firmware via luci. Flashing once more with that box unticked I am now able to successfully scan the wifi network.

My apologies for the noise.
