web interface recon mode freezes at 100% after airodump crash

Device: NANO
Type: Bug
Status: Closed

I was running airodump-ng over SSH on interface wlan1mon and tried to resize my terminal window. For whatever reason this caused airodump-ng to crash along with the web interface (airodump refused to close despite multiple CRTL-C attempts) I could still SSH into the pineapple, so I rebooted it from there using the "reboot" command (since shutdown -r now was not available) After the pineapple finished rebooting I connected over the web interface, only to find recon mode to hang at 100% (15 second setting used to test) Other tools such as PineAP were fully functional after the reboot. On further investigation interface wlan1mon was not present after running ifconfig (results listed below)

upon further investigation there seems to be a conflict between recon mode and airodump-ng. After multiple reboots I pinpointed the freezing issues down to running airodump-ng and recon mode at the same time

I'm making some changes to recon mode which should probably also avoid this from happening, but no guarantees, as airodump might be doing other funky things.
