Bill, here is my patch for ethereal. This works with GTK+ 1.2 and 2,
and fixes the lockup encountered when running with GTK+ 2 by using
select() on the bpf file descriptor to see if we have packets to read.
The ability for this to work was introduced by the patch in
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=22063, so it should be fairly
safe to use this.
If you have no objection, I'll go ahead and commit this.
