The 32 bit version of wireshark runs smoothly on my system, the 64 bit version barely runs at all and frequently crashes.

Wireshark: Version 2.0.1 (v2.0.1-0-g59ea380 from master-2.0)

Here are the differences between the 32 and 64 bit builds:

----Compiled (32-bit) with Qt 4.8.6, with libpcap, without POSIX capabilities, with libz 1.2.3, with GLib 2.16.3, with SMI 0.4.8, without c-ares, without ADNS, with Lua 5.2, with GnuTLS 2.12.19, with Gcrypt 1.4.3, with MIT Kerberos, with GeoIP, with QtMultimedia, without AirPcap.

Running on Mac OS X 10.11.2, build 15C50 (Darwin 15.2.0), with locale C, with libpcap version 1.5.3 - Apple version 54, with libz 1.2.5, with GnuTLS 2.12.19, with Gcrypt 1.4.3.

Built using gcc 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3).

----Compiled (64-bit) with Qt 5.3.2, with libpcap, without POSIX capabilities, with libz 1.2.5, with GLib 2.36.0, with SMI 0.4.8, without c-ares, without ADNS, with Lua 5.2, with GnuTLS 2.12.19, with Gcrypt 1.5.0, with MIT Kerberos, with GeoIP, with QtMultimedia, without AirPcap.

Running on Mac OS X 10.11.2, build 15C50 (Darwin 15.2.0), with locale C, with libpcap version 1.5.3 - Apple version 54, with libz 1.2.5, with GnuTLS 2.12.19, with Gcrypt 1.5.0. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz (with SSE4.2)

Built using llvm-gcc 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2336.9.00).

Please file a bug report on the Wireshark Bugzilla, and give the full contents of the crash reports, not just the summary; the stack report is extremely important for debugging purposes. Please attach to the bug all the different crash reports ("different" as in "have different stack traces" or "have different exception types".)
