Ethereal: 0.10.5
Interface: GTK2
OS: Windows XP


These are (mostly) new in 0.10.5 to my knowledge.


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
  partially off screen
Notes:
Once you've moved it around, further capture dialogs locate themselves
appropriately (remember where they should be).
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
        fine.
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
Notes:
On 0.10.4 (I only noticed/figured out a couple weeks ago what was
happening) this series of steps would result in an infinite loop in
Ethereal because the Save Buffer dialog would never be displayed, and
I would have to kill Ethereal with the Task Manager. So this is an
improvement.
