Hello Bill,

Nice catch regarding the GTK and Glib versions.  Since I was too focused on
looking for source level changes in the gtk folder that could explain the
crashes I totally missed the difference in libraries! (Note to self: When
comparing two buildbot versions of Wireshark always diff the contents of the
build information!)

The use of GTK+ 2.12.0, with GLib 2.14.1 appears to be what has spawned the
crashes in the current Buildbot versions of Wireshark.

Release Version: 0.99.6a (SVN Rev 22276)        
   Status: ok
   When: ~2007-07-09    
   Compiled with GTK+ 2.10.12, with GLib 2.12.12        

Buildbot Version: 0.99.7-SVN-22767      
   Status: ok
   When: ~2007-09-02    
   Compiled with GTK+ 2.10.14, with GLib 2.12.13        

Buildbot Version: 0.99.7-SVN-23034      
   Status: crashes
   When: ~2007-09-30    
   Compiled with GTK+ 2.12.0, with GLib 2.14.1  

and up to today....

Buildbot Version: 0.99.7-SVN-23186      
   Status: crashes
   When: ~2007-10-15    
   Compiled with GTK+ 2.12.0, with GLib 2.14.1  

Now the question...  

Is this a new defect introduced in GTK+ 2.12.0, with GLib 2.14.1 or a latent
bug in Wireshark that perhaps depended on unspecified behavior of the previous
GTK+ and Glibs?

Thanks,

Jim Y.
