Hello everybody

I am having a hard time making kismet write logfiles. My configuration says
logprefix=/var/log/kismet (which is world writeable)
logtypes=pcap,text,pcapbtbb,networks
logdefault=Kismet
logtemplate=%p%n-%D-%t-%i.%l

Version is 2011-03-R2, compiled from source. Scanning Wi-Fi and BT works fine.
I am only getting pcapbtbb files in my log directory. The directory from which I am running kismet_server is empty. Kismet is installed as suid root. Didn't manage to run kismet_server in gdb due to thread issues, strace did not help either. Anybody's got a clue?

Thanks,
Peter
