I've compiled ethereal 0.10.5 on RedHat 9.0 with gtk+ 1.2.10.

Is it intentionally that the 'About Ethereal' dialog has
on Authors?
Sorry, what?

Is it intentionally that the 'Help Menu' does not have items
for 'Manual Pages' and 'Ethereal online'?
Yes, that's a temporary solution, as we currently don't have code to 
start a webbrowser on GTK1, as the current webbrowser calling code uses 
GTK2 specific calls.
Ethereal is fully functional except when I want to save the
capture to a file and click on the 'Save' button of the
Ethereal Save Window it crashes with the error message
Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  serial 131475 error_code 3 request_code 15 minor_code 0

I've checked the same on my Win32 build and didn't get any problems. Does anyone else on RedHat using GTK1 has the same problems?
I'm sshing into the RedHat box, but that should not be the
Probably not.
