Date: Thu, 6 May 2010 03:26:11 -0700 (PDT)

           Summary: Wireshark stops receiving packets soon after start
           Product: Wireshark
           Version: 1.2.8
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.6
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: Low
         Component: Wireshark
        AssignedTo: [email protected]
        ReportedBy: [email protected]

Build Information:
Compiled with GTK+ 2.18.8, (64-bit) with GLib 2.22.5, with libpcap 1.0.0, with
libz 1.2.5, without POSIX capabilities, with libpcre 7.9, without SMI, without
c-ares, without ADNS, without Lua, with GnuTLS 2.8.6, with Gcrypt 1.4.4, with
MIT Kerberos, without GeoIP, without PortAudio, without AirPcap.

Running on Darwin 10.3.0 (MacOS 10.6.3), with libpcap version 1.0.0, GnuTLS
2.8.6, Gcrypt 1.4.4.

Built using gcc 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5659).

When I view the interface list, the packet counts go up as expected. As soon as
I start capturing on an interface, either ethernet or loopback, only "first
burst" of packets are received and displayed, then wireshark stops receiving
(as I observed with network traffic monitor) or displaying more packets.

When I open preferences, I get many many repeats of:
(wireshark:55381): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_has_screen: assertion
`GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

in terminal. The number (55381) varies at different runs.

I have exactly same issue on a MacBook and an iMac. Both of them use Intel CPU,
run 10.6.3.

On the other hand, wireshark compiles and runs fine on a PC with Ubuntu 10.04
