Wireshark crashes when zoom out


#1

Hello All,

I am a big fan of wireshark.I am using the tool for almost 2 years and want to use this further.

I found an issue of wireshark being crashed when zoomed out.
It doesn’t affect my work though but functionality issues can be root cause for big problems.

The wireshark “About” dialog box info is as follows:
