> when the kismet-server gets started, the blue light flashes for 2-3 seconds (way longer than normal), then stops blinking for 4-5 seconds (also way longer than normal) and then it indicates no connection. if i try to start gpsd with the -b switch for a read only connection, it only stops blinking for 4-5 seconds, but also loses the rfcomm connection. gpsd runs fine but lost the connection to the device-link. i checked this with a telnet connection to the gpsd. I've also tried to fiddle around in the kismet.conf i.e. changing the "gpsmodelock" and "gpsreconnect" values, but nothing solved the problem.

hm... i just tried an "airodump-ng -gpsd bla" and it's behaving the same way... looks like the bluez-hcidump delivered with maemo5 is the problem
