I just tried to "consolidate" my KISMAC data files. I had aboutr 10 of
them. I exported them into netstumbler text files.

Merging them by importing all of them did not work because I did not
have GPS data in all of them. Currently KISMAC does not look if GPS
data is lost when a duplicate MAC address is imported. I lost too many
APs that had a GPS locaton.

Anyway. I exported all into Netstumbler text files and managed to find
the duplicates without GPS data. I then imported all of them back it.
That gave me a nice list. Now I started scanning again and - B O O M -
All APs found were inserted again even though the were already in the
list. Same MAC and everything! 

What it boils to is this:

- when importing KISMAC files check if GPS data gets lost
- Check why duplicates are kept after Netstumbler import

Again, sorry that I can only contribute bug-reports and feature
