        Just a few minutes later, KisMac has wedged once again -- it's 
still running and thinks it's scanning, but channel hopping is not 
taking place and the Traffic map is blank.

        Here's a backtrace from gdb:

        In both cases, just before wedging, the application recorded the 
following error in console.log:
