Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Trunk not playing nicely with Ubuntu's overlay scrollbars

This is rather bizarre. The problem is revision 43646. I have
double-checked by reverting just those two lines on my local latest
trunk, and the bisection is accurate - somehow revision 43646 is the
problem.

I see that the code it calls does some things with the packet display,
but the crash is happening even on the main page before loading a
capture, so I'm at a bit of a loss. Any ideas?

I agree.

Calling new_packet_list_recreate() only if there's a PacketList certainly gives
the previous (better) behavior. (What's a good way to do this ?)
