Using tshark 1.2.11 to get a hex dump of packet data gives an error:

/opt/exp/sbin/tshark -r binary_gold -x > text_gold_new ** ERROR:print.c:794:print_hex_data: assertion failed: (edt->pi.data_src) /opt/exp/sbin/tshark[5]: 2259 Abort(coredump)

Is this a known bug in 1.2.11, and is it fixed in later versions?

Here is my version info:

$ /opt/exp/sbin/tshark -v TShark 1.2.11
