WireShark 1.6.2, including WinPcap. Also happens with 1.6.1. When I close the program, and answer the prompt to save, it appears to save, and then throws a Run-Time library exception. If I stop the capture and then exit/save, it works. This used to work fine. Any ideas? Thank you.

I think in GTk if we make the save hidden until unless we stop then the work is completed..........

The bug is still open so there's no resolution yet.
