Sounds like either a bug or OutOfMemory, how big is the pcap file that you are opening?

Sounds like there is something wrong with the capture file. Did you transfer it via FTP to your PC? If so, please do again and use binary mode. If no: can you post the capture file somewhere?

BTW: What is your Wireshark version?
