If you have customized your Ubuntu GTK theme, Wireshark would most likely crash as soon as scrollbars come in to play. I experienced this in Ubuntu 14.04 and found the solution to be disabling overlay scrollbars that come as the default.
To do this simply add an environment variable called LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR with value0.
