> you probably understood that in this case above i was talking about "normal" Kismet and not about Newcore... :)

No, I assumed you were speaking about newcore since the rest of your post is about newcore. If you're suddenly switching to looking at how stable handles things, I'd have to go look at different code.

There is nothing I can do if madwifi is putting the wrong values in the fields.

Unless the other application is using radiotap and rfmon to derive the signal value there is no correlation. Few (if any) other apps do. Iwconfig, networkmanager, etc most definitely do NOT.
