I just went through installing wireshark and xquartz on a new mountain lion install, and after pointing wireshark to the X11 directory, have been getting some weird gdk errors that prevent it from loading altogether.

I'll paste part of the log here in hopes that someone else has run through the same issue.

What do you mean by "pointing wireshark to the X11 directory"? I just installed Wireshark 1.8.2 and the latest version of XQuartz on a fresh Mountain Lion virtual machine and, once I logged out and logged in again (to get the appropriate DISPLAY environment variable setting; don't try to set DISPLAY yourself!), it worked fine.
