What version of tshark are you using and on what platform?  Perhaps you could provide “tshark -v” output?  If you’re not using the latest stable version (currently version 2.6.5), you could try updating.  If you are using the latest stable version, then you might want to file a bug about this on the Wireshark bug tracker here: https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/.


For the record, I tried this on my system using “tshark -M 100” to cause sessions to be reset very quickly over and over, but I could not reproduce the problem.  Here are the details of the version of Wireshark I’m running:


TShark (Wireshark) 2.6.5 (v2.6.5)
