I've been toying with the idea of adding a precompile option button to
the capture dialog. When pressing that a popup would show you the BPF
code (like tcpdump -d) and a result of processing the capture filter.
Maybe you can file an enhancement bug?

Hi Wireshark developers,
I am currently fighting again with the capture filter syntax. I want
build a relatively complex filter which isn't that simple.
My major problem while developing the capture filter is that there
missing possibility to check the syntax of a filter. The only
is to try starting a new capture session.
I don't expect an real time checking while typing with highlighting
simple button for checking the syntax would be really great and would
improve the option dialog significantly.
Additionally the "Invalid capture filter" error dialog does not give
clue what part of the filter string caused the error. A little bit
verboseness would be helpful here, too.
Is there any chance to get those two changes implemented?
