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, so it should be fairly
safe to use this.

If you have no objection, I'll go ahead and commit this.
