That was the intended behavior when the dialog box and Stop button was first put 
in - if you want it to, instead, close the file it's reading and clear the list 
of packets, but keep running, send mail to ethereal-users@ethereal.com asking 
for that (as this isn't something Red Hat added, it's the way the regular 
Ethereal release works).
