Our LANforge app uses winpcap (OEM version) and it has run for
weeks, at least, on Windows.  It wasn't actively using winpcap
all of this time to send/rx pkts, but the library instances
were loaded and interfaces queried, etc.

We have also done some 24-hour tests under moderate load (sending
and receiving about 10Mbps of traffic continuously on 2 ports).

So, it seems pretty stable to me, but it's still possible that
months of packet activity could show issues...
