Thanks for the error report & example files.

The problem turned out to be a formatting bug in the kismet client/server code for 802.11d country definitions, when multiple channel ranges were present (the field termination code was inside a for loop, not at the end).

This wasn't *really* an 802.11a bug, but acted like one, because usually only 802.11a networks have multiple channel ranges defined in their 11d advertisements.

Fixed in SVN and will be fixed in the next release.
