Highlights of Wireshark 1.8.5:

• Infinite and large loops have been fixed in the Bluetooth HCI, CSN.1, DCP-ETSI DOCSIS CM-STAUS, IEEE 802.3 Slow Protocols, MPLS, R3, RTPS, SDP, and SIP dissector;
• A possible CLNP dissector crash has been fixed;
• The DCP-ETSI dissector could have corrupted the memory. This problem was fixed;
• Wireshark no longer crashes when starting due to out-of-date plugin left behind from earlier installation;
