wireshark cap/pcap files from the regression test

Description of problem:
During the regression testing of bugs 604312, 590615 I have found that wireshark/tshark segfaults on several pcap files from a regression test.
This is a regression, previous version wireshark-1.2.9-2.el6 does not segfault.

Unfortunately I am not able to identify what was the origin of those segfaults in the passed and provide related bug/patch. There may be only one unfixed error in wireshark but also there may be several independent errors.

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

How reproducible:
always (tested on x86_64)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download attached archive
2. tar -xzf tshark_crashers.tar.gz
3. for FILE in crashers/*cap; do tshark -nVr $FILE &> /dev/null || echo $FILE; done;
Actual results:
wireshark/tshark segfaults

Expected results:
no segfaults

It seems to be already reported (and fixed) upstream:
Comment 5 Jan Safranek 2010-08-16 07:06:22 EDT
..and upstream fix (SVN rev. 33704) seem to fix the crashes.
