When you double-click a packet to open the packet in a new window, Wireshark's
Packet List will jump down by twenty or thirty packets and the selected packet
This only seems to happen when the new packet window opens on the same monitor
that Wireshark is running on, and only a two-monitor system.
1. Run Wireshark on a two-monitor system and leave it running on the primary
2. Open a trace file, or capture traffic, so that there are more packets than
can be displayed on one screen.
3. Select one of the packets on the first screen.
4. Double-click any packet on that first screen to open it in a new window. The
new window will open on the first monitor and the display will jump.
5. Close the new packet window. Move Wireshark to the second monitor. Again,
double-click a packet to open in its own window. The new packet window will
open back on the first monitor, and the display will not jump.
6. Move the new packet window to the second monitor, where Wireshark is
running, and then close it.
7. Again, double-click a packet on the first screen to open in its own window.
This time the new packet window will open on the second monitor, where
Wireshark is running, and the display will jump.
This seems to stop happening after you scroll down a few screens. It doesn't
happen on a single-monitor system, and it doesn't happen when using the
right-click functionality and selecting "Show Packet in New Window"
