Hi,

With col_set_str() cinfo->col_data[col] != cinfo->col_buf[col] and most of the
time it's either static memory, g_malloced or se_alloced memory, ie a constant
for the life of record->fdata->col_text.

But some dissectors still call col_set_str with ep_alloced memory (via
val_to_str)
cf. at least
packet-icmp.c
packet-wow.c
