Created an attachment (id=6272)

Attached file is a sample response from server fired to the client ( mostly
located on mobile devices ) 

Build Information:
File type : .cap 

Wireshark version used : 1.4.6 

Problem : 

probe.cap file is a response received from a server in XML format to a target
client, mostly residing on mobile device. Device is able to recognize these
encodings: Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, x-gzip, identity. In the above
case,probe.cap,  data is encoded in x-gzip format. 

However, Wireshark is unable to read the contents or decompress this x gzip
content. Hence analyzing the response becomes impossible. 

Immeditaly will need a temporary work around until a permanent fix is
identified. Please help.
