Subject:Kismet Stops Recording Packets

I'm having trouble with the 2013-03-R1 version of Kismet. Kismet happily runs for hours when it is sitting on my desk, but when I drive it stops processing packets after about a half an hour. I don't think this is a GPSD problem because I've encountered the same error using a virtual GPS. Kismet doesn't crash, but somehow the increased number of new networks overwhelms Kismet. When Kismet is running on my desk the gpsxml file keeps growing, but the nettxt file doesn't get too large because not that many new networks are seen. When I'm driving, however, the nettxt file increases to around ~6MB then stops recording gpsxml and nettxt data.

I'm using the Alfa AWUS036NH on Arch Linux so I don't think it's a driver issue. And DHCP is disabled.

Maybe this is a bug? Does anyone have any workarounds? Maybe this is fixed in 2013-03-R1b? Thanks!
