Can't Open Wireshark After OS X 10.10 Yosemite Upgrade

Reading online produced the conclusion that X11 Quartz (a dependency of Wireshark) had been moved from /usr/X11 to /opt/X11 as a part of the upgrade to OS X 10.10 (Yosemite). To restore the ability to open Wireshark, create symlink from the old location, /usr/X11 to the new location, /opt/X11.
sudo ln -s /opt/X11 /usr/X11
Now try launching Wireshark. The first time I launched it took ~60 seconds to load. All subsequent launches took considerably less time.
