PC 'A' is running Windows & Wireshark as per title; on the WiFi network interface (Broadcom) in promiscuous mode; PC B is connected to the same WiFi network

If, from PC B I ping the IP address of PC A, I get duplicate ICMP responses received at PC B.

The duplicates show up in the Wireshark trace on PC A, ping stats at PC B; and also in a Wireshark trace on PC B if I also run Wireshark there.

If I stop the running capture on PC A, the duplicates do not happen.

If I ping B from A whilst the capture is running, no duplicates are seen.

Any ideas on what could be a cause of this ??

Not likely to be the cause but are you really running Wireshark 1.2.9?, That is a seriously old version.
