Ah.  Good.

Oh, converting the files was no problem, once I saw what was going on.
I've already written a program which converts pcap dump files to
"native" word size, based on the struct timeval format (and native
endianness, while I was at it).  Of course, it'll be unnecessary once I
fix up libpcap...but it was a simple quick hack to render the file
readable in the meantime. :-)
