The version that ships with wmii is *ancient*! My config on GitHub
is much better, having since undergone several bursts of evolution.

I recommend upgrading to both wmii-hg and my config on GitHub. :)

I just installed wireshark-gtk in ArchLinux and ran `sudo
wireshark`: it started up just fine; no crashes. My env:

  # wireshark -v
  wireshark 1.4.6

  # wmii -v
  wmii-hg2786+, ©2010 Kris Maglione

  # ruby -v
  ruby 1.9.2p180 (2011-02-18 revision 30909) [x86_64-linux]

  # rumai -v

  # uname -a
  Linux ratham 2.6.38-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Mar 30 08:47:36 CEST
  2011 x86_64 Genuine Intel(R) CPU U7300 @ 1.30GHz GenuineIntel

I recommend compiling wmii from its source code repository. The
3.9.2 stable release in your Linux distro is ancient, IMHO.

Your config seems fine. I don't see any glaring problems in it.
