You're correct, except I have a flag in a previous portion of the packet
that's telling me there's supposed to be more data.

I want to print something that points back to that flag to say "Bogus flag!"

...which means that you'd be trying to fetch data past the end of the
packet, right?  If so, an exception would be thrown (as you're going past
the end of the tvbuff), and the packet will be marked as malformed for you -
you don't even have to write any code to do that.
