So is this correct that i ever must first select the AP with arrow-keys before i can see any clients?
If this is the case, then it's definitly a UI-problem, because i can't select any APs with arrow-keys or with mouse. I tested it with a real terminal too (no gnome-emulated terminal), but it doesn't work too. So I'm thinking that it's no backtrack depending problem. Because you wrote that you can't reproduce this i will install kismet on my debian-partition. It will need a bit time but then I / we can see if the problem is the backtrack-OS.

Thanks for helping!
