Last night I was out trying to find a few new APs on a route that I've
not been on. All worked well. I was carrying my PB in my bag with the
GPS-USB cable stuck between the screen and keybord. That way it won't
go into sleepmode while having a defcto closed PB. The cable sometimes
"presses" a key on the keyboard though. That happened last night. The
letter "m" got into the Searchbox on the top-right side. No big deal I
thought and saved my new found APs - I THOUGHT.

What happened is this: KISMAC saved all APs that contained the letter
"m" in its SSID. It dind NOT save all others.

Is it a bug or a feature? Thank god I exported a NetStumbler File for
WIGLE last night so only one day was lost.

Are you able to reproduce that same behaviour? If so I'd call this a
serious bug since large amounts of data are lost.
