Description: When issuing tshark -v from the command line, the following message is returned:

tshark: Couldn't load plugin '': /usr/lib/wireshark/plugins/2.6/wiretap/ undefined symbol: register_codec
TShark (Wireshark) 2.6.0

According to upstream Bug 14638 - is installed in the wrong place. the file should reside in /usr/lib/wireshark/plugins/2.6/codecs.

Creating the directory and moving the file manually there solves the issue.

Since upstream indicates the issue as "fixed", there might be something amiss in packaging.
