It happens with the MingW compiled version of WInPcap 4.1 beta5 sources;

I've managed to install VC-2008 express and built Packet.dll. I used this
with WinDump and saw the same description bug. I've not tried 4.1 beta 4.

I've got libpcap-Git in '.' and then unzipped WpcapSrc_4_1_beta5.zip
there. Hence Packet32.c, AdInfo.c etc. under 'WinPcap\PacketNtx\Dll\'.
I'm pretty sure I've done everything correctly. I've not modified any important
structures or files. For reference, see the makefile I used.

All this would be much easier if someone could merge WinPcap's libpcap
into the Git tree. E.g. pcap-tc.c and the 'tcInstance' stuff into pcap-int.h.
And what about the remote stuff?

Btw. Win32-Extensions.c should say:

pcap_getevent(pcap_t *p)
#ifdef HAVE_TC_API
 if (p->TcInstance != NULL)
  return TcGetReceiveWaitHandle(p);
