If the router changes its mind about the route, the only way you're
going to get the traffic you want is to capture on all interfaces on

Well, yes.

As I would think of Ethereal as a measuring tool, I would like accuracy for the features it provides.
A feature with 90% accuracy might still be more useful than no feature
at all.

It might be an idea to show all *possible* interface with the most likely marked as such.
