This works for me too, thanks!

OK, thanks for clearing this up. I did not keep in mind that another
dissector may be called that does not dissect the packet but just hand
it of to the data dissector (I thought the data dissector was directly
called by the tcp dissector in this case). Now I understand why it's
important to use the new style for dissectors.

This works as well, thanks for your help.
