Wow. That took some creativity to test. There is no way I can figure out how to
have a space in a Users home directory. For a FULL PROOF test may want to have
Christopher or Gabriele verify that this line:

sed 's|${HOME}|'"$HOME|g" "$TOP/etc/pango/pangorc" >
"${HOME}/.wireshark-etc/pangorc"

works for them. I am comfortable in my simulation of a user home directory with
a space in though. Here is what I did:

As uid0 from the / directory: "ln -s Users Users\ HD"

Then I edited the /Applications/Wireshark.app/Contents/Resources/bin/wireshark
file to include the following at the top of the script: "HOME="Users HD/jay"

Then I ran wireshark, which worked just fine and had the following the
~/.wireshark-etc/pangorc file:

[Pango]
ModuleFiles=/Users HD/jay/.wireshark-etc/pango.modules
[PangoX]
AliasFiles=/Users HD/jay/.wireshark-etc/pangox.aliases

I believe everything will be fine using the new line #73 from above.
