Hi all

This is very inconvenient, as I use this app very often... yesterday, I was analyzing some tcpdumps, and all was working fine. Suddenly, when trying to open another file, wireshark crashed... and does so ever since when I want to open a file. Error message in X11 is

"The program 'wireshark' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 13533 error_code 8 request_code 67 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdkxerror() function.)"

I've reinstalled X11 as well as wireshark, but to no avail. I'm not very familiar with the X Windows system, I've only ever used it for wireshark (and ethereal before that).

Mac OS X 10.5.1, wireshark 0.99.6

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,
