I've got a simple question about wireshark's layout. I would like to know if is it possible to insert a fourth window in the user interface. We would like to add a topology of a sensor net and i dont found any reference in internet about it.

You'll need to do a fair amount of code rewrite for that. It may be easier to add it as a dialog in a similar manner to the stats and graph dialogs.

I would also vote, from a UI perspective, for adding it as a dialog. I consider the results of some form of processing a capture (stats, graphs, etc.) to be separate documents from the presentation of the raw packets, and prefer to see them in separate windows.
