Description Tom Wood 2004-06-18 17:19:22 UTC
Description of problem: ethereal-0.10.3-2.2, as did some earlier
versions, after running for a while, goes into a sleep state, does not
update the displays, and can't be coaxed out of sleep.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start ethereal from a command line.
2. Start a capture.
3. Watch display after a while lock up and never change.
4. Kill ethereal-associated windows by clicking on the X.
5. Observe that the window from which you started ethereal doesn't
return a command prompt until you press <ctrl>-c.

Actual results: ethereal goes to sleep (S state in ps)

Expected results: ethereal keeps capturing packets

I've tried it with the current version of the development tree and
couldn't reproduce the problem after half an hour and several capture

Read ya, Phil

I'm currently seeing this on FC3 (both test2 and test3). The current
version I'm running is ethereal-0.10.6-3. I've not yet ethereal work
on FC3.
