I have reproduced the issue in a clean Wily VM.
And did short triaging:

#4  0x00005653770ef3e3 in main_widgets_rearrange () at
3491            g_assert_not_reached();
(gdb) p prefs.gui_layout_type
$1 = layout_unused

Recompilation does not help and the preferences file is not created.

The Qt version and tshark start fine.
