No matter the stable or lastest snapshot version is used, there is a timing bug
in packets :
consider HTTP (www.bbc.co.uk) : i browse / then i get the page that asks me to
download some other elements like image or javascript or css, right ?

The problem is that wireshark decodes :
No | TIME   | Info
11 | 9.465 | GET / HTTP/1.1
47 | 9.767 | GET /home/release-19-2/script/glow.homepage.compressed2.js
HTTP/1.1
49 | 9.813 | HTTP/1.1 304 Not Modified
91 | 9.879 | HTTP/1.1 200 OK (text/html)

So please how could you explain that my browser now where to fetch the js
before he got the answer of the page ? So there is a timing bug in the
decoding. Check it yourself, i think you can easily reproduce this by browsing
some site (here www.bbc.co.uk) with a modern navigator and filtering only http
traffic.
