Right. I need to fix this. I'm not sure what the semantic of the final capture filter
should be... Should it be a default which is used when no other capture filter is
specified? Or should it be the filter which is used for every interface?

Currently I'm using the default semantic, but it is not clear that this is the
way to go. What do you think?
