Bug squashed / feature removed. Grab the modified files from here: http://gm2.ath.cx/~gm/kmbugfix1.zip
My rule for determining bug/feature is: If it gets in the way more than it's a good thing, then it's a bug. If it is a good thing more than it's a bad thing, it's a feature.

Hmmm, I'll investigate this one.
We do need something like bugtraq here though to keep track of these. On 04/02/2006, at 12:35 AM, globo wrote:
Last night I was out trying to find a few new APs on a route that I've
not been on. All worked well. I was carrying my PB in my bag with the
GPS-USB cable stuck between the screen and keybord. That way it won't
go into sleepmode while having a defcto closed PB. The cable sometimes
"presses" a key on the keyboard though. That happened last night. The
letter "m" got into the Searchbox on the top-right side. No big deal I
thought and saved my new found APs - I THOUGHT.
What happened is this: KISMAC saved all APs that contained the letter
"m" in its SSID. It dind NOT save all others.
Is it a bug or a feature? Thank god I exported a NetStumbler File for
WIGLE last night so only one day was lost.
Are you able to reproduce that same behaviour? If so I'd call this a serious bug since large amounts of data are lost.
