Ok, I read the startup message but thought I had
madwifi and not madwifi-NG , but after svn it seems
that madwifi is the same.

At madwifi svn 3626 while running gdb kismet_server after a
somewhat longer time (45 min) I get a hard lock which requires a reboot.

This laptop has no serial port,is there a way to debug further
without a serial console?

> rmmod ath_pci
> modprobe ath_pci autocreate=none

after the above module commands Ive run for 2 hours and no crash
so if I get a crash after reboot again, then Iĺl give madwifi
that info so they can reproduce it (hope)
