(needed to install firmware-linux-nonfree) Strange as other ncurses apps I had weren't similarly affected. Whatever. Now I'm up and cooking with gas. If I can just get the new shortcut keys figured out...

I suspect it was your whole system choking every time it tries to change channel (which probably tries to do a firmware load).

Alternately, it's locking the app issuing the ioctl (kismet) when it tries to change channel, again due to a firmware load.

Good that you narrowed it down.
