Not sure if this is politic or not, but it would be convenient if the ethereal settings were automagically imported into wireshark when there are no ws settings.
[Tested 0.99.1p1 under windows.]

I manually copied
  C:\Documents and Settings\ewedel\Application Data\ethereal\cfilters
  C:\Documents and Settings\ewedel\Application Data\wireshark\cfilters
and wireshark read them fine.

Yes, it should either try opening "...\ethereal \..."/"~/.ethereal/..." if "...\wireshark\..."/"~/.wireshark/..." fails, or try copying those to the Wireshark location and then try opening them.

On a side note, I'm happy to report that multi-term capture filters don't crash wireshark, at least in my limited testing. That's a vast improvement from 0.99.0.

And you were using the same version of WinPcap in both cases?
