I'm having a problem when restarting a capture in linux. When I start wireshark it's all good. The capture starts fine. If I hit restart/stop this happens: The capture stops, the packet table isn't cleared up and I'm not able to start the packet capture again.

I think the problem might be related with libcap, but I don't know what to do..

What version of Wireshark are you running? Bug 12715 says that upgrading to 2.0.5 (from an earlier 2.0 release) fixes the problem.
