Read the docs regarding madwifi (or upgrade to the latest version and see if they fixed it), also the multiple warnings issued during startup on a madwifi system. Madwifi doesn't like going into rfmon, you have to reload the module with autocreate=none.

> there is one thing that seems to me to be a bid strange: When i start kismet the connection to my AP is not disconnected and it is also possible to connect while kismet is running. Is this a problem?

No. You can't be on a network and running Kismet. (Again, in the docs.)
