hi everybody,

i found a cause for this "bug", kismac not loading the driver. it seems 
that the airport driver is indeed in use on a couple of systems. 
however i was unable to figure out, why. you can easily identify such 
systems, by executing "ioreg | grep AirPort" (case sensitive). if there 
are two AirPortUserClients, then you such a system. now the question 
is, what could that be? i know one is the menu extra, which will be 
killed when you start scanning with kismac, but i could not figure out 
what the other one is for. i would be glad if anyone could help me with 
thank you guys.


p.s. i will probably release 0.05c3 later, where you can at least 
override kismacs decision to not load the driver, however this will 
cause the loss of the airport connection even if you quit kismac.
