Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] wireshark 0.99.7 crash on MacOS X 10.5 (Leopard)

Hi there,
I'm trying to rebuild wireshark for MacOS X 10.5 (Leopard) with the new X11 engine (instead of the old XFree86, Leopard uses XFree.org's implementation if I'm not mistaken). However I'm running into crashes saying:

intelix:sources afink$ wireshark --sync
The program 'wireshark' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 57553 error_code 8 request_code 152 minor_code 4)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

So I did a backtrace in gdb and got this:

Does anyone have an idea what this could be?

I launched Wireshark, saved the preferences (to eliminate tons of warnings of undefined new preferences) started a capture with live display on my ethernet. A few packets got displayed before this happened.

Same happens to my preconfigured Wireshark 0.99.5 version which was still compiled under Tiger 10.4.
