But I can't find the presentation or any mention of it since. I've tried reading the source code for clues, but frankly not being a programmer means I'm just reading Greek. I now have my own WLAN to setup and want to use the special secret Kismet's own SSID, so what was it?

No, it wouldn't.

(And I never did such a presentation that I can remember).

There (may have been) a bug which didn't handle some characters in a SSID, but I never got report working, I seem to recall the person reporting it was using a proxy inbetween which was rewriting the protocol and once you do that, all bets are off.
