I'm suspecting "TCP checksum ofloading"...

1. All and only the packets going from 192.168.... to 10.17.... 
   with a non-zero TCP payload are marked as having "bad checksums".

2. The value of the TCP supposed checksum in each of the frames is 
   *highly correlated* with the length of the TCP payload for that frame.

    "TCP checksums": d53f/d340   packets with TCP length 94 
                     d533/d534  ..............           82

    and soon.

Was the capture done on the node with address 192.168....  ?


IMHO this not a bug in Wireshark.

Please see:

http://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsug_html_chunked/ChAdvChecksums.html
http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/Offloading

I'm marking this as Invalid.

Please feel free to reopen this if you disagree.
