Set proper timestamps when capturing the virtual NIC to a file

I forget what the VirtualBox option is to start the writing of virtual NIC traffic to a file, but I am sure you understand the feature to which I am referring.

In any case, it would seem that the timestamps of the packets written to the (tcpdump format) file are not set properly. That is, if I use tcpdump to read the file, the timestamps start from the UNIX "epoch" (approx. jan 1, 1970)

The reason for doing this is that the time stamps of the capture files should match the timestamps of the VBox.log file (and other .log files which are created for debugging versions of VirtualBox). All these log files start at time 0:00. So I think we will not change the offset.
