I see. Do you have a guess then? In the history there was no mention
of anything else that could be causing this that I could see.

I know that, of course. Every version of WinPCap after v3.1 beta 4 is
showing the problem even with Ethereal v0.10.12 (which is working with
WinPCap v3.1/b4), and every version of Etherall after v0.10.12 is
showing the problem even with WinPCap v3.1/b4. The change in question
must have occured between v3.1/b4 and beta 5. Since Ethereal also uses
libpcap, I thought this might be a pretty good guess.
Versions before that (of both programs) used to work fine in every
combination I happened to use, too. I haven't checked them again now.
GH> the current beta release of WinPcap is 4.0 beta 1, not 3.1 beta
GH> anything. Have you tried the final 3.1 release? If that doesn't

I tried both, the problem remains. I was hoping this would be a known
- and fixed - bug for the newer versions, so I checked them as soon as
they became available.
