Does this problem still exist with tcpdump-3.6.2-12.2.1AS.5?
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-05-11 09:54:44 EDT
tcpslice seems broken anyway... in any version I tried..
# (tcpdump -r foo2;tcpdump -r bar2) > ver1
# tcpdump -r foobar2 > ver2
# diff -u ver1 ver2

the diff reveals different versions of the playback -> tcpslice is
b0rken... we should report this upstream
