You're probably not running the latest Kismet (2013-03); this looks like you've got another vap active which is preventing resetting channels.

Try manually ifdowning all the other vaps then trying again; Kismet-2013 tries to do this automatically since it most often occurs on systems running networkmanager.

While you can (usually) do AP+Monitor, if you're trying to be an AP, you can't channel hop - so disable channel hopping in Kismet, which will also avoid this problem.
