[kismac] DWL-122 Spinning Beach ball!

Based on the success of others using DWL-122 and Kismac I went ahead and got
one. NO SUCESS HERE! Kismac seems to recognize it as a USB prism2 card but
then freezes up w/ a spinning ball. I tried selecting all channels as
previously mentioned and still didn't work. The only way to free up Kismac
is to unplug the card or multiple force quits. When I pull out the card I
get (USB Prism2 error) Can anyone speculate as to what the problem is?  I
think there is something on my system causing this since I can get the same
DWL-122 & Kismac to work on my iBook G4 . There is a malloc error I found
that it has to do with memory allocation but not sure what to do about it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

DLINK model# DWL-122 <B> / H/W Ver:A1
FCCID: Ka22002090028-1
