Built from source on Solaris10 using GTK.
./autogen.sh is ok
./configure --with-qt=no --with-gtk=yes completes ok
gmake completes ok
./wireshark-gtk
1. Get pango read errors
2. start up dialog opens, ugly font and progress completes.
3. Segmentation Fault and core dump

./tshark
SEGMENTATION FAULT and core dump
What is going wrong?

Can you run Wireshark under a debugger and post a stack trace?

Wireshark has a bug. Please file a bug on this on the Wireshark Bugzilla.
