Using Mac OS X 10.11 with wireshark download: Version 2.0.0rc1 (v2.0.0rc1-0-g3b09294 from master-2.0)

I traced port 80 traffic from iTunes attempting a download and see the assert.

taking the pcapng file to Linux and uses the packaged Fedora version wireshark-1.12.7-2.fc22.x86_64 the pcap decodes without error.

As others have said, it's a bug, and it's a 2.0-specific bug; it's not on your Linux box because you're using 1.12, not 2.0, on your Linux box, not because there's a difference here between OS X and Linux.

In particular, it's bug 11598, found on Windows, which is a duplicate of bug 11593.
