I am getting following crash (linux 2.6 kernel) when I run tshark to capture packets.
Is this a known issue ? If so may I know if there is a fix?

What version of Wireshark are you using?  What Linux are you using?

Is it possible to get more of a backtrace than what is quoted above? Without more backtrace it will probably be difficult to determine what the problem is.
