Kismet will destroy non-rfmon vaps if configured to do so and create its own.

It will bring down it's own when it's done.

wlanconfig ath0 create ...

should make a vap of that name. If it doesn't, udev is breaking your system and renaming interfaces, and you'll have to figure out how/why (which is distribution specific).
