[vbox-dev] Cannot Live-capture VirtualBox network packets with Wireshark

Hi All !

Host: Debian Linux 6.0, x64. VBox 4.0.51

The live capture command is this one:
tail -c +0b /tmp/mydata.cap | wireshark -k -i -

But when I separate those into 2 commands, it works:
tail -c +0b /tmp/mydata.cap > /tmp/123.cap
wireshark /tmp/123.cap

Such problem doesn't exist with other emulators (Dynamips), so with
Dynamips I can enjoy live traffic updates.

Any ideas?
