I can reproduce the sigfault with .1.6.9., but not with
1.6.9 does NOT sigfault when run from a shell, but it does if called from a menu or launcher in XFCE. For example, i have sudo configured to allow me to run sudo wireshark without password.

from an shell (in Terminal, actually), sudo wireshark works fine.
From the launcher or menu option which executes 'sudo wireshark' , i get a sigfault.

I tried to trace the call with
ktrace -f /tmp/SUDOKTRACE -d sudo wireshark

but i only get up to the loading of ld-elf ... 

If you have any tests to suggest, let me know.
