I downloaded wireshark 1.6.7 for windows (32 bits). I am running it in a Windows 2008(32 bits) virtual machine (The hypervisor is Hyper-V)
After a period of running wireshark making a capture, it crashes with the following error:
Faulting application wireshark.exe, version 184.108.40.206973, time stamp 0x4f7f4286, faulting module libglib-2.0-0.dll, version 220.127.116.11, time stamp 0x4e253544, exception code 0x40000015, fault offset 0x0004c2d8, process id 0xb74, application start time 0x01cd26dd6a840d67.
The version is Version 1.6.7 (SVN Rev 41973 from /trunk-1.6)
Any ideas / suggestions

I can create a very similar error message if I run a 32 Bit version of Wireshark on Windows 7 64 Bit and open a file larger 2 GByte (a lot HTTP, which obviously consumes quite some memory).
As already mentioned, it looks like an OutOfMemory problem. Try to use ring buffers.
