I normally start Wireshark from a Windows desktop icon that executes the

"C:\Program Files\Wireshark\wireshark.exe" -k -c 100000 -i 1

If I click on the "Stop the running live capture" button, and then click on the
"Start a new live capture button," I get a Windows dialog that says "Wireshark
has stopped working." The dialog gives two choices: "Check online for a
solution and close the program" or simply "Close the program."

Clicking on "View problem details" shows this display:

Wireshark does not crash if I remove the "-k" command line switch. I can start
it with either or both of the other command line switches, or with no command
line switches at all and it doesn't crash, but as soon as I add "-k" to the
command line, it crashes when the capturing is stopped and then started again.

The crashing stops if I revert to 1.6.0, and resumes immediately if I reinstall
1.7.0-SVN-37653. I have seen this same behavior in several previous 1.7.0-SVN
versions as well.
