there isn't anything in the logtemplate in kismet that directly matches that - file number increment isn't padded and timestamps are done differently.

Unfortunately, while adding log template options to pad increment by zero and have an option for HMS without dashes is simple (already adding it in SVN), detecting sets in kismet and opening a new log as part of a set is pretty non-trivial since filenames wouldn't collide when dated with second precision.
