> Managed, ad-hoc mode fully work. Kismet is now able to see data packets and clients. It appears to fully work now, except for the fact that exiting it sucks even worse now: I press 'Q', it will always hang. The only way to recover is press 'Ctrl-Z' to put it in the background, kill -9 it and rmmod+modprobe the drivers.

Hm, try this (w/out kismet):

ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
^-- Does this hang? Does it say it won't do it?
ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
^-- Does it hang here?

You can always disable the unmonitor by editing and finding the iwl4965 line and replacing wext_unmonitor with NULL. I'm a little resistant to doing that in the release code tho, in the hopes that they fix it soon...
