I'm  currently working on a dissector t o analyze MPEG2 I started with
ethereal version 0.9.16 and everything worked perfect, now I want to
change to the newest version but it doesn't work after compiling  and
starting the program aborts with this message:
** ERROR **: file proto.c: line 2565 (proto_register_field_init):
assertion failed: (isalnum(c) || c == '-' || c == '_' || c == '.')
(I did not change a line in the source code)
what could cause the problem?
thanks ,
