When I run Ethereal, it always crashes at the point when it's going to
display the first packet with this error:
** ERROR **: file ftypes.c: line 431 (fvalue_set): assertion failed: (fv->ftype->set_value)
This should be fixed in Ethereal 0.10.5.

As a workaround in 0.10.4 you could try editing your .ethereal/recent (without Ethereal running) and removing the lines beginning "recent.display_filter:".
