When you have a SSL/TLS traffic in wireshark and wireshark does not have the
server's private key, in order to decrypt it you have to add the private key
and reboot wireshark.
In version 1.4.7, the ssl/tls traffic was decrypted as the user pressed the
"Apply" or "Ok" button in the SSL protocol preferences.

Steps to reproduce:
1. download
and extract the files where you prefer (from now on called $DIR directory)
2. open the $DIR\rsasnakeoil2.cap capture file with wireshark
3. Go to "Secure Socket Layer preferences"
4. Add a "SSL debug file"
5. Open "RSA keys list"
6. Add the entry:
    port: 443
    protocol: http
    key: $DIR\rsasnakeoil2.key
7. Save settings

Actual result:
The SSL/TLS traffic is not decrypted and you need to reboot wireshark (and open
$DIR\rsasnakeoil2.cap) to decrypt the SSL/TLS traffic

Expected result:
The SSL/TLS traffic should be decrypted without rebooting wireshark
