The radiotap per packet header is invalid. It has a length field, and this field indicates the header ends somewhere not inside the packet.

either it's a kernel bug sending bunk packets to userspace, or it's a kismet bug (i have fixed some problems with the radiotap parser in SVN though I don't recall this being one of them) causing it to not be read correctly.
