Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] bug in follow TCP ASCII

I've discovered a bug in the "follow TCP" ASCII view, it seems to drop
the last payload octet of each packet. See attached capture file, I sent
"0123456789" from client to server, and replied "abcdefghij" from server
to client. In ASCII view on "follow TCP" in wireshark, the "9" and "j"
are missing. They are present in HEX display and C array mode though,
but also seem to be missing (I just noticed now) in RAW and EBCDIC
modes... I'm using:

wireshark version 0.99.2
gentoo linux (everything pretty much latest version)
kernel 2.6.17
gtk 1.2.10

Let me know if you need more info. If you can tell me where the "follow
TCP" code is more or less in the repository I can try fix the bug if you
don't have time.
