These lines, being from a previous version of kismet, are irrelevant and are not processed. Adding them has no effect.

Sounds like you resolved whatever your issue was, however if your system does not properly set up lo (and ALL SYSTEMS ARE EXPECTED TO), then any network service which tries to behave securely and bind only to the local system will break. This will be much more widespread than just kismet, and I will NOT be changing the default behavior of kismet to bind to all interfaces.
