On a Windows XP, SP2 machine I am getting this hung Close File issue. The only way around it is to define the filename beforehand and have it record multiple files of a specific size. Then when I am finished, I use TaskManager to kill Wireshark. Pretty tedious & not very pretty.

That's sounds like bug 3046, which should be fixed in the next (1.6.5) stable release.
