Hi guys,

my wireshark crashes frequently(about 75% of times) when I try to analyze RTP streams from the show all streams window.I am building wireshark using code from git,branch is master-1.12.I am attaching the screenshot with the crash log and my git status.I am compiling my Wireshark using

./configure --prefix=/path/to/wireshark-install/ . option.Here is the screenshot!

and here is the gdb trace.

Can someone help me with this!

EDIT: I have compiled wireshark with

./configure --prefix=/path/to/wireshark-install/ --with-gtk2 --without-gtk3 --with-qt

./configure --prefix=/path/to/wireshark-install/ --without-gtk2 --with-gtk3 --with-qt

./configure --prefix=/path/to/wireshark-install/ --with-gtk3 --without-qt

and I can reproduce the problem in all three versions.

I suppose your OS distribution of Wireshark is quite old, hence your own compilation. Unfortunately it's going to be quite difficult to debug this without a capture that causes the issue to occur for you. Are you able to provide one?

Ah! So it is a known bug.This link has a similar gdb trace.So has someone pinpointed the problem yet?
