Done.  I've marked it as "OK", as I've run it successfully on SL.
The wikidot site states that Wireshark version 1.2.1 is "OK" on Snow
Leopard now.
Yes - that's what I said I changed.

Aren't the the check-ins just done only available in SVN
and presumably in the next Wireshark stable release?
Michael Tuexen's checkin fixed a problem that only occurs with 64-bit  
code.  The Wireshark OS X binary distributions are 32-bit, and will  
work on SnowLeopard just as they'll work on Leopard.  (The problem to  
which snowleopard.wikidot.com was referring is the long-standing  
"Wireshark eats too much memory per packet" problem, which is far from  
unique to SnowLeopard.)
