I just downloaded the snow leopard 64 bit version of wireshark 1.4.2. The same problem with my 1.4.0 version. With the wireshark window open (in X11), if I hit the tilde key (~) to cycle through the windows, it cycles once but then freezes and wireshark will not do anything at all. I have to quit X11 and start back over. I've not noticed this before. I've used wireshark for a couple of years now. It may be some recent change in my environment.
If there is some why I can help debug this, please let me know.
Thank you, pedz

I'm not aware of any functionality to cycle through X11 windows (on OS/X) by pressing the tilde-key. If this a personal setting or shortcut, what key-sequence does it represent?
(the tilde-key is also not a Wireshark assigned key to cycle through it's open windows)

What version of OS X do you have?
To trigger this bug, you need a non-default setting for quartz-wm, "The problem only occurs for me if the "Enable key equivalents under X11" option is disabled from the System Preferences/Input tab." : http://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac/ticket/370
So just run Software Update and you should be fine.
