        Interesting.  I saw this show up as a "probe" entry in the 
network table, just before KisMac locked up.  However, in this case I 
wasn't running another Stumbler package (although I had previously 
tried that a couple of days ago, without much success).

        So, it sure makes me wonder what might have generated that probe 
packet.  Can the Airport software do this periodically, and we just 
happened to catch one of those probes?  Or maybe someone else was 
spoofing my MAC address and trying to get on my network?
