I'm in the middle of rewriting the dect client plugin (though it's shelved for a few right now). If you just upgraded kismet, make sure you remove the old dect plugin and recompile it (C++ gets cranky and weird when it's got API mismatches between libraries and main code and crashes instead of errors, often). If that still doesn't work, fire it up in gdb and let me know what error it crashed with, and at some point in the next few weeks I'll try to get the plugin update done, where it uses the new menu API and such.
