The read filter is to limit what's displayed, everything passing the capture filter is written to file.
That behavior itself is a bug, see:


(It used to be that read filters also controlled what went to the disk.)

I would really love to get read filters (during capturing) working again but I have no idea when I'll find the time.
We also noted that without -w the temp file is left on the system.
Yep, I see that too.  That file used to be cleaned up, didn't it?
