Hi,
 
I had a tshark built on version 0.99.6.
 
My system mets serious crashes while running tshark using display filters and goes to KGDB. (crash is not consistent though, this time it was 4th crash). I couldn't get any core as system went to KGDB mode.
 
Please let me know if it's known issue. and if yes, has it been fixed in 1.0.0?
 
Here are the other relevent information
 a) I was running tshark (version 0.99.6) as a root
Output of
root#tshark -v

Compiled with GLib 2.6.1, with libpcap 0.9.8, with libz 1.2.1.1, with libpcre
4.5, without Net-SNMP, without ADNS, without Lua, without GnuTLS, without
Gcrypt, without Kerberos.

Running on Linux 2.6.10_mvl401-pc_target, with libpcap version 0.9.8.

Built using gcc 3.4.3 (MontaVista 3.4.3-25.0.116.0601565 2006-09-20).

 b) Processor Intel (Xeon) also Linux kernel 2.6.10

 c) I used following display filters. (For three crashes it was different )
               -r "arp && arp.dst.port_ipv4 == 172.23.145.196"
               -r "ip.proto == 1"
               -r "ip.addr == 192.168.1.2"
               -r "ip.addr == 172.23.145.198"
 
 
Also When I run tshark without root, it errors out with permission denied. What can I do to run it as a normal user?
