Thanks for letting us know!

On Unix - once you install Wireshark it strips the debugging symbols to
reduce the binary's size.  If you run Wireshark from within the build
directory, the debug symbols are still there.

On Windows - I think you can debug it even after being installed by
telling MSVC++ to attach to the process.  I know you can do this when
run from the build directory.
