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:


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.
