I'm using Win2k SP4.

Just installed Wireshark 1.21 and when started it brought up a small blank
window, used 96% of my CPU and did nothing else. Process Explorer can't kill it
-- reports "Access denied".
Had to do a power off to exit Windows and caused disk errors in the process.

I was foolish enough to try again with identical results.

Since there has been no progress made on this in the last 7 months and several
versions, how about providing a warning on the download page? This is a very
unpleasant and potentially dangerous bug.
