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 asking 
for that (as this isn't something Red Hat added, it's the way the regular 
Ethereal release works).
