In the Capture Options screen, Wireshark shows the available interfaces for the
selected host in the interface list. However, when another host is selected
(such as a remote rpcap host), the list isn't cleared and the interfaces for
that host are only added to the list.

When selecting yet another host, the list only grows.

This leads to a long list of interfaces, and the combination of selected host
and available interfaces is not correct. For example, in the screenshot my
local interfaces are displayed, while a remote rpcap host is selected.

Problem is also seen in 1.6.0, but not in 1.4.7.
