sorry, I might not have been clear enough.

127/128 pdu octets is about sabp initial message size (I suppose more largely
any sabp-pdu, initial, successful/unsuccessful outcome)

I removed 1 octet from message content (last octet of the frame, corresponding
of last octet from write-replace message content)
itu X691 (http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/studygroups/com17/languages/X.691-0207.pdf)
says that length is coded like this :
- less or equals to 127 : 1 octet (
- more than 127 and less than 16K : 2 octet with most significant bit to 1 and
size coded on 14 bits (
- more than 16K (see not really interesting in our case)

you can see encoded size on offset 45.

that why when I remove 1 octet from message content, TCP PDU is 2 octets

the issue seems to be that when SABP-PDU is less than 128 bytes, wireshark is
not able to find the correct format.

cf. hf_index == -1 in packet_per.c function dissect_per_length_determinant,
section /* */

hope I'm clear enough and we agree :-)
