My wifi drain started the moment I got out of range of connected AP... No drain after I installed "DHCP Client replacement/update for CM10", in second post.

Was your phone connected to AP when wifi was on?

Kernel Update
Ok, as promised, you'll love this one

Change Log
*Added USB Fast Charge mode
*Net: Various ipv4 related fixes from kernel 3.4
*Wifi: Lowered default dBm of the wifi card to 19dBm (<3 my health)
*Wifi: Raised scan time for wifi from 3s to 8s (<3 my battery)
*Wifi: fixed compatibility between 10, 10.1 and ICS
*Wifi: fixed battery drain
*Wifi: removed background scan (let Combo Scan do the job)
*Row: Multiple patches from 3.4
*Row: Implemented urgent requests (speedy gonzales style)
*Disabled LG FOTA crap in muic (and hopefully autofix some bugs)
*Disabled android compaction process (let's have the new awesome lmk do the job)
*Modified kernel entropy generation (the new black apparently)
*input: monotonic input events (fasteeeer, i said faaaaaaaster)
*increased slightly timers ticks/second (oh, this is going to be felt a lot)
*gpio timers from kernel 3.8
*android logger from kernel 3.8
*prepared makefiles for gcc 4.7.X (the next step)
This one comes bundled with the iwtools and the magnificent Kowalski Manager app made by wfd specifically for this kernel !!!

For CM10, to have perfect compatibility with wifi, please flash the wpa_supplicant_8_update.zip in my Addons folder on dev-host. It will update your wpa_supplicant in the system and you'll get the same behaviour as on 10.1 and ICS !

As usual the kernel downloads are on dev-host in my Kowalski Kernel folder

So what happens now with the new kernel when I go out of range of the wifi AP? Will it disable it or just use lower power scanning for new networks?

Was your phone connected to AP when wifi was on?

It was connected and it was right next to the AP...
Anyways, that "fix" is already included in version 11, and I'm gonna flash it right now
