I was reading the 1.6.1 release notes from
http://www.wireshark.org/docs/relnotes/wireshark-1.6.1.html, and noticed the
following under "Known Problems":

The 64-bit Windows installer does not ship with libsmi. (Win64 development page) 

Is this still applicable?  I'm still working on 32-bit Windows, so I don't know
for certain, but I seem to recall someone compiling libsmi for Windows 64-bit. 
Plus, it is mentioned as supported under
http://wiki.wireshark.org/Development/Win64 and it's available in the latest
packages directory here:
http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/wireshark-win64-libs/tags/2011-06-27/packages/

Also under "Known Problems" is this:

Character echo pauses in Capture Filter field in Capture Options. (Bug 5356) 

... yet that same item is also listed under the "Bug Fixes section.
