Taking the occasion, I performed some new test with Etherall/Wireshark
to see whether my crash-problems would be gone with this version of
In short: They are not. But they've changed.
I installed WinPCap v4/b2 over v3.1/b4 (no reboot) and tried the
already installed Ethereal v0.10.14. As usual, the first capture
start-stop worked. On the second, however, the program failed to show
any packets, and then wasn't able to stop at all (Stop-button still
enabled, Start-button hidden). But it didn't freeze as before.
So I thought that maybe the error that I'm seeing would be caught in
the new version and would no longer lead to the crashs. So I updated
Ethereall to Wireshark v0.99.3. On starting this one no interfaces
were detected. Which was not all that surprising since I still had not
rebooted after updating WinPCap.
After rebooting I startet Wireshark again: First capture start-stop,
ok. Second start - Freeze.
I then installed WinPCap v3.1/beta 4 again and again started
Wireshark. Surprise: now it worked.
I therefore dare say that the problem is not with Ethereal/Wireshark
but indeed with WinPCap itself. I sure could use some help in
