Hi list,

I tend not to install the SNMP MIBs (on my Windows PC), probably because I noticed a long time ago that loading them during Wireshark startup took a non-zero amount of time and I never use them.
Recently I started upgrading to the latest SVN versions on my PC because 
I needed some of the fixes but now whenever I start Wireshark I get an 
error box that says:
The following errors were found while loading the MIBS:
-:0 1 module-not-found failed to locate MIB module `IP-MIB'
-:0 1 module-not-found failed to locate MIB module `IF-MIB'
-:0 1 module-not-found failed to locate MIB module `TCP-MIB'
which is of course expected except, well, it shouldn't be an error in my 
case.
Should we just take out the error?  That makes some sense except that we 
wouldn't have known about the SNMP portion of bug 1827 so soon (and 
other similar problems?).
What else could/should we do?
