Control frames show up in a monitor mode interface just like all other
frames in the air on that channel. If the frames are not showing up then
it is likely a driver issue. I'd try switching BT versions to see if it
works, or better yet, tell me which alfa you have and what driver you
are using for it and I'll test it.

I recently rewrote the majority of airmon-ng and dropped it into the
aircrack-ng svn as "airmon-zc". Feel free to give it a try and pass the
results back so I can test on my end. I don't support all the older
crappy drivers so it may not work if you are using one of them, if that
is the case use airmon-ng or figure out the driver for yourself.
