I am running Wireshark ver 1.8.0rc2 (SVN Rev 43337 from /trunk-1.8) under Windows 7 SP 1. While capturing GOOSE packets, if I try to move the window, the screen locks up. I have to pop up the task manager to either kill it (sometimes it frees up and becomes responsive again).

Try running the current 1.8 version, 1.8.5, instead. The "Development release" shouldn't even be offered - it was Release Candidate 2 for 1.8.0, but it was obsolete when 1.8.0 was released, and we're now up to 1.8.5.

Thanks. That did solve the problem.
