While working on IPv6 support in Pcap.Net (http://pcapdot.net), I've found the
following:

In IANA and RFC 5533, IPv6 Next Header 140 (0x8c) is set to SHIM6 protocol.
http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-parameters/ipv6-parameters.xhtml
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5533#section-17

However, in Wireshark 1.6.6, it seems that a packet with Next Header 0x3d is
recognized as SHIM6.

See attached PCAP file for an example.

Thanks,

Boaz.
