"next week"?  I guess he got a little side-tracked, eh? ;)

A couple of things to note ...
(1) It's been over a year since this bug was filed and the next release of
WinPcap is nowhere in sight.
(2) Isn't 1.2.18 the last version to support Windows 2000?  This bug was
originally filed against 1.4.0rc3 and 1.2 is end-of-life.
(3) According to wikipedia, Windows XP SP1 was released 9 years ago on
September 9, 2002.

Still worth keeping this bug open?
