    Excuse the basic question - but when I download a version (say 0.6.4) the contents of pcap.c are nothing like those of the latest version in cvs. I have found an error with the downloaded version in that pcap.c:3445 does:

      free((char *) arg1);

    when it should be:

      delete_pcapObject(arg1);

    from what I can tell. Otherwise I run out of bpf descriptors on Darwin when I use scapy.

    However, this line does not exist in the CVS version of pcap.c, so I don't know where the error is coming from and whether it is known to be fixed - and therefore in which released version.

    Thanks,

    Peter
