The reported issue was, indeed, fixed as part of the enhancement provided in
Bug #5227.

The "Example packet for option 60 changes" file attached to that bug shows the
problem with Wireshark 1.4.6 and is dissected properly with the latest SVN.

So: the upcoming Wireshark 1.6 release will properly dissect this
option/suboption.

I'm closing this bug as "fixed" (altho not actually fixed in Wireshark 1.4...).


The fix was part of a significant enhancement to the bootp dissector.
Significant enhancements aren't normally back-ported so the enhancement won't
be ported back to the Wireshark 1.2... & 1.4... releases.

[A fix just for the bug might be done for Wireshark 1.2 & 1.4 if it's possible
and makes sense and can be done with a simple patch and someone actually
submits such a patch].
