no kismet does not capture with wext.

Had to build latest rt73 driver, build in support for it to wpa_supplicant. (NB.. use seamonkey cvs: ralink and ubuntu link to latest driver are not 'latest' plus build did not work for the ubuntu source link)

Capturing ok now though still causes a segmentation fault on exit - can live with that.
