 Everyone that runs the 2.0 beta is having trouble with packet loss at very
 low volume.  It seems to come from the default snaplength increase to
 65535 and the inability with the old libpcap api to effectively increase
 the buffer size.

 I don't know how to solve this problem yet, but we need to fix it very
 soon and it's a definite blocker for the release.
