Of course, I'm just the port maintainer..

Nonetheless, I'm somewhat familiar with the trafshow code.
I tried to reproduce the problem, and I think I was able to see what
you're seeing on a couple of different FreeBSD releases, and it doesn't
seem to have anything to do with the flags you used (-npi <iface>). I
still had a good half page of connections on screen, but an order of
magnitude or so less than usual.
I don't suppose anyone uses trafshow on another OS they could use to see
if this is a FreeBSD-specific problem?
