How about on a single-interface system? Maybe Wireshark should at least select the only listed interface as the default on a single-interface system. That IS going to be the interface that the user selects before each capture. On a multiple interface system, I can see the logic of either method--either selecting the first interface or selecting no interface if the user has not specified a default. Neither method is clearly superior and the choice of which should be implemented is a matter of opinion.
