Wireshark on MacOS Mojave crashes when setting SSL key in protocols

I have a capture that I need to decrypt. I also have the private key from the server.

I started wireshark from command line ( wireshark /tmp/capture.cap ).

Then in Preferences->Protocols->SSL I set the path to the Pre-Shared-Key.

Then I click OK.

Now the app will crash and terminate. This is what it prints to stdout

20:03:47.629 Capture Warn

sync_pipe_wait_for_child: waitpid returned EINTR. retrying. Segmentation fault: 11

Please help. I am unable to decrypt the SSL session. Here is the crash log being sent to apple:
