--
When using editcap to split a trace into multiple smaller files using the "-c"
parameter only the first file will have an Interface Description Block. All
other files will not have one, even though it is mandatory for pcap-ng files.
They also do not seem to have an ISB at the end of the file.

I think each file must have all interfaces of the original file in an IDB block
because otherwise the interface index of the packet blocks cannot be matched to
an interface entry.
