I just changed this to read "Auto Scroll" instead in SVN revision 35108 
to save space.  The other references remain "Auto Scroll in Live 
Capture" such as in the View menu.

I often run Cygwin/X to display a Unix version of Wireshark across the 
network to a Windows XP machine as well as run Wireshark natively on the 
Windows machine.  The icons in the Unix version are quite a bit bigger 
on my 1280x1024 screen.  Before my change (see above), the Windows 
version ends at "Auto Scroll in Live Capture" while the Unix version 
ends before that at "Top".  I don't know why GTK+ would show different 
sizes in Unix vs. Windows.
