Description of problem:
Ethereal displays progress dialog while parsing long capture file. If I press
"Stop" button in the dialog, ethereal just exits. When I run ethereal from gdb,
it says "program exited normally".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run ethereal and press "Stop" button during capture parsing
Actual Results: Ethereal exits.
Expected Results: Stop parsing and stay working.
That was the intended behavior when the dialog box and Stop button was first put
in - if you want it to, instead, close the file it's reading and clear the list
of packets, but keep running, send mail to email@example.com asking
for that (as this isn't something Red Hat added, it's the way the regular
Ethereal release works).
