What is the difference between what kismac stores in it's own file
versus the dumplog if I choose to only store uniques IV's.

I ask, because I just performed a test on  my own system.  According
to Kismac i captured just shy of 2 million unique IV's.  When I look
at the dump file it is 3.7 megs and Aircrack says there are only
23,264 unique IV's.  I understand there may be a small difference in
how the two read the packets, but I didn't expect it to be this large.

The packets were captured using a DWL-122.  I started the scan with
hopping, then changed to a single channel immediately, then gereated
traffic using a clamshell to network to a PC desktop.  At the end I
switched back to channel hopping to avoid the crash.

Should I have selected to dump data packets or all packets instead?
I don't know if Kismac can crack it or not, I left it running at home.
