Thanks for your feedback.  To colorize packets or filter them, it has to 
look into the packet to see what is there so tree is set, otherwise it 
isn't.  Right?  I can change the code so that it looks into the packet 
for these fields if tree is set or not if others think it would be a 
useful feature.
