The attached trivial trace file can be used to demonstrate the following

Changing a display filter by using the right mouse pop-up menu via
packet-list can trigger Wireshark to crash.

Steps to reproduce:

1: Open up the attached trace file in Wireshark.

2: Enter a display filter of "arp".   4 frames should be listed 1-2 and 11-12.

3: In the packet list put the cursor over frame 11 (or 12) and the "Source"
column and then enter a right mouse click.  The targeted frame (11 or 12) show
be selected and a pop-up menu should be displayed.

4: From the pop-up menu select either the "Apply as Filter" or "Select as
Filter" menu items and then select any of their sub-menu options (for example
"Selected").  This will trigger crash.

The problem appears to be related to having a display filter in place that and
then triggering the pop-up from a later frame from the packetlist.   The crash
does not appear to happen if the pop-up is triggered from the packet details. 

NOTE: If you choose frames 1 or 2 instead of 11 or 12 in step 3 you will NOT
trigger the crash.

A similar crash can be triggered by setting an initial display filter of:

   "frame.number == 1 || frame.number == 3"

And then right mouse clicking on frame 3 Source column in the packet list and
select either the "Apply as Filter" or "Select as Filter" submenu options.

I have also replicated issue with a very recent SVN 33194 built locally.
