this filter also crashes Wireshark, if you simply load a capture file and use
the filter:

ip.addr &

So the problem here is that this is a filter that just crashes Wireshark were
it obviously shouldn't do so ;-)

I can easily reproduce the crash with this filter, the problem occurs in
cmp_bytes_bitwise_and (epan/ftypes/ftype-ipv4.c, line 178), as b is an invalid
pointer here.

I personally don't know that code well, so I can't fix it. But if one of the
other developers can't reproduce it and needs assistance (e.g. detailed call
stack), just ask ...

(I've updated the summary accordingly)
