I've just started having a closer look at this and I have a question.

It looks like start_dissecting does a bit more than just set up the
proto tree. It calls check_col and col_set_str.

So is it safe to not call it when there are no items or would it
be better to add a parameter to start_dissecting to stop it trying
to add the proto tree if there are no items.

Thanks for any help
