single-interface 
capture is still more common, even on multiple interface
systems.

If the user has not selected a default interface at Edit -> Preferences ->
Capture, I'd vote to have Wireshark select the first interface listed in
which Wireshark determines that there are actually packets available to
capture.  This can be seen with Capture -> Interfaces (Ctrl-I).  If no
interfaces show packets, then Wireshark can probably just choose the first
interface.
