L.S.

I just compiled 0.10.5 on my Linux box, and it segfaults every time I try to save a file, be it a capture or something like the output of 'Follow TCP stream'.
Output of 'ethereal -v':

ethereal 0.10.5
Compiled with GTK+ 1.2.6, with GLib 1.2.6, with libpcap 0.7.2, with libz 1.1.3,
with libpcre 4.3, without UCD-SNMP or Net-SNMP, without ADNS.

Running with libpcap (version unknown) on Linux 2.2.13-NANO.

A backtrace:
