The culprit is likely in the get_interface_list() function within
capture-wpcap.c.  As the comments in that function state, the returned
information from WinPcap are double-byte unicode strings (which would be
UTF-16) and for some reason, we go through the extra effort of taking apart the
UTF-16 string and make an ASCII string out of it.  Using a UTF-16 to UTF-8
conversion routine would probably be best there, such as GLib's
g_utf16_to_utf8() function.
