Comment # 7 on bug 10037 from
The code to read pcap files doesn't consider caplen > len an error; the code to
read pcap-ng files does.  dumpcap captures a pcap file from the pipe and writes
a pcap-ng file; Wireshark/TShark try to read that file and they report an

There's no reason to treat that as an error - we can just work around it. 
(tcpdump, at least, doesn't treat it as an error; libpcap just passes the
lengths through for both pcap 2.4 and later and for pcap-ng.)
