Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2008 22:44:17 -0700 (PDT)

           Summary: Timing of packets in a mess
           Product: Wireshark
           Version: 1.1.x (Experimental)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Wireshark
        AssignedTo: [email protected]
        ReportedBy: [email protected]

Build Information:
Wireshark 1.1.1-SVN-26226 Intel.dmg
Compiled with GTK+ 2.12.9, with GLib 2.16.3, with libpcap 0.9.5, with libz
1.2.3, without POSIX capabilities, without libpcre, without SMI, without
without ADNS, without Lua, without GnuTLS, without Gcrypt, with MIT Kerberos,
without PortAudio, without AirPcap.
No matter the stable or lastest snapshot version is used, there is a timing bug
in packets :
consider HTTP (www.bbc.co.uk) : i browse / then i get the page that asks me to
download some other elements like image or javascript or css, right ?

The problem is that wireshark decodes :
No | TIME   | Info
11 | 9.465 | GET / HTTP/1.1
47 | 9.767 | GET /home/release-19-2/script/glow.homepage.compressed2.js
49 | 9.813 | HTTP/1.1 304 Not Modified
91 | 9.879 | HTTP/1.1 200 OK (text/html)

So please how could you explain that my browser now where to fetch the js
before he got the answer of the page ? So there is a timing bug in the
decoding. Check it yourself, i think you can easily reproduce this by browsing
some site (here www.bbc.co.uk) with a modern navigator and filtering only http
