Ethereal: 0.10.5
Interface: GTK2
OS: Windows XP

Bug #11: Start capture dialog sometimes not centered.
Severity: Low
Effect: User annoyance, workaround available
Steps to Reproduce:
- start Ethereal
- ctrl-k to bring up the Start Capture dialog
- notice that occassionally the dialogue is partially off screen
- notice that when starting the capture, the Stats dialog correctly
  places itself in relative terms to the Start dialog, which is also

Also note that this doesn't always happen, just once in a while.
However the dialogs do seem to move around the screen a lot.

Bug #12: Closing a minimised Ethereal doesn't work properly
Severity: Unknown
Effect: Error dialogue pops up, but otherwise everything seems to work
Steps to Reproduce:
- turn on "Asked for unsaved buffers" option
- capture some packets
- minimise the main window
- right-click the taskbar button and select close
- notice the error box that pops up
