This only occurs with my Cisco Aironet 350 card. With a borrowed Prism 2.5 card, KisMAC works great -- records all GPS coordinates perfectly. I reported this on the bugtracker months ago, but it was closed with a note "not reproducible".
KisMAC drivers don't seem to unload. Notes: If I run KisMAC and scan and quit it, then I cannot get a connection through my Airport Extreme, Senao, or Cisco Aironet card. In fact, if I scan with KisMAC, quit KisMAC, relaunch KisMAC, it says that it can't load the driver. So basically if I scan with KisMAC, I have to reboot my machine afterwards.
Problem: KisMAC crashes or locks up moderately frequently. Notes: KisMAC is more stable than it used to be (used to crash when I looked at it wrong). I can't exactly reproduce the crashes, but I can give you instances that increase the probability of a crash:
Due to these bugs, perhaps 90% of the nodes I scan are unusable. I no longer wardrive with KisMAC. I can't imagine that anyone else does either.
PS: I'd be happy to pay a $15 shareware fee if the above bugs are fixed, as the features it offers are not matched by any other Mac OS X software.
