The hang is probably due to the stopping of the VPN client which usually "disconnects" a virtual network interface. You can salvage the temp file Wireshark wrote though. While capturing you'll see the name and path of the temporary file in the status bar to the left. After you terminated Wireshark the hard way you can find the file at the specified location, usually your system temp path.
