Anyone having problems with Kismet, HostAP and Kernel 2.6

I have a Debian unstable system, with kismet, HostAP (currently 0.1.2) and
kernel 2.6.2. I am using a Senao card, level 1.4.6.
I can use the Senao card as a managed system, and it works well. There do
appear to be some issues with removing the card and reinserting it (wlan0
already exists on reinsertion), but I suspect these are fixed in CVS as I
recall that there were some API changes that are probably not in the
Debian unstable version yet.
However when I run Kismet it just will not start. It complains that the
Set Frequency request was invalid. It then complains that:-
FATAL: capture child 3655 packet buffer empty and flagged as diseased,
and shuts down.
I never had this kind of problem with another laptop that I had which
ran the same hostap and kismet, but ran on a 2.4 kernel (my currently
laptop will not run with a 2.4 kernel).
Anyone having simular problems?
