In the capture file 'pana-draft18-patched.cap', packets from 2 to
13 are dissected as raw UDP packets or malformed PANA packets.

I checked the latest packet-pana.c in trunk-1.4 and found that
packet-pana.c treats the PANA AVP Length field as including the
length of AVP Code, AVP Length, AVP Flags, Reserved, and Vendor-Id
fields. I think this behavior is not correct because RFC
5191 (http://tools.ietf.org/html//rfc5191) says that the AVP
Length field indicates the number of octets in the Value field.

(quoted from RFC 5191)
>   AVP Length
>      The AVP Length field is two octets, and indicates the number of
>      octets in the Value field.  The length of the AVP Code, AVP
>      Length, AVP Flags, Reserved and Vendor-Id fields are not counted
>      in the AVP Length value.

The sample capture
also has errors on treating the AVP Length field. I created
'pana-draft18-pached.cap' from 'pana-draft18.cap'.
