This is a non-error. Somewhere else something is going wrong.

Make sure you're getting a monitor vap (wlan0mon by default)
and that packets are coming in on it (tcpdump while kismet is running).

If you ARE getting packets and kismet isn't doing anything with them, they may be in some way corrupt or misformed or just weirdly different - grab a pcap with tcpdump, and put it somewhere I can look at it, or email it to me (zip/gzip it)
