the line:

current-cvs.tcpdump.org.2007.01.04.

is important to have a wlan bug fixed.
Note: the easiest way to start wireshark is to type /usr/local/bin/wireshark in the X11 window after starting X11 or to make a menubar entry the same way.
As far as the capturing goes, dont use Capture->interfaces. Use Capture->Options and select the interface there then.
Then it will always work.
