One comment: if you are using tshark initially only to create capture
files for offline analysis, I suggest using dumpcap instead.
Dumpcap is the program used by tshark to actually do captures and only
does capturing (no analysis).
Using dumpcap may not resolve the problem, but using dumpcap instead of
tshark does simplify the process.
