I do this on an Ubuntu 10.04 server:

tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol

Then I copy it down to my Mac where I have wireshark installed.
Version 1.3.4 (SVN Rev 32340 from /trunk)

The usual first question: How did you "copy" the file ?

(The copy must be a "binary" copy).

(An additional note: Wireshark 1.3.4 was a development version of Wireshark from quite some time ago: we're up to SVN #386..
and Wireshark development versions 1.7...).

If possible, I suggest upgrading to a recent 'stable" version (1.6.1)).
