None what so ever, patches welcome.

Make sure you're running the latest release (2009-11 or SVN) since until then, plugins didn't work on OSX at all.

Snow Leopard in general doesn't work particularly well for rfmon, reasons unknown as the apple API error codes appear to be completely undocumented. I've also heard that the latest SL drivers break things even more, so until I hear different, I tend to consider snow leopard to be irreparably broken and essentially EOL as far as kismet goes. Tests appear to indicate it works flawlessly about 15% of the time, the rest of the time some unknown internal state prevents monitor mode from functioning.
