I get a crash of Wireshark 1.1.10 (last stable WinXP 32b version - WinXP 5.1.2600) when I close the "Flow Graph" window, while keeping "Traffic Analysis" window open.

Steps to reproduce it:
1.- Open wireshark and load any trace.

2.- Go to "Statistics" and click on "Flow Graph".

3.- The "Flow Graph" window will open. Leave all the options by default and click OK.

4.- The "Graph Analysis" window will open, like you see below: alt text

5.- Now, click on Close or Cancel" dialogue in the "Flow Graph" window (don't close "Graph Analysis" window)

6.- Wireshark hangs and get a get crash before some seconds. A window pop up "Wireshark had detected a problem and must be close".

With the same trace, in Linux versions, when you execute the step 5, the program close both window, but never hangs.

Thanks for you help or suggestions.

Sounds like bug 8793 to me (which will be fixed in 1.10.1 and 1.8.9).

Really, I don't know if it's a BUG or a problem with my own machine. Before report a BUG, I would like to know if someone knows about this issue, if there's some configuration that I can apply to solve this problem.

Thanks, Miguel

Ok, confirmed, it crashed for me, too. I doubt it is a configuration issue.
