Looks like it's either erroneously getting a success from the vap create ioctl, or something is rapidly tearing down the kismet vap before the next step - maybe something in udev is screwed up and renaming the interface immediately after it's created? When kismet exits, do you now have a monitor-mode vap named something else? What happens if you manually create a monitor mode vap named kis0?
