There have been complaints about the reassembly routines before
I'm unsure if all has been fixed...
There is at least http://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1722
"TCP reassembly missing payload of FIN packet, when DESEGMENT_UNTIL_FIN is

I think that as long as the dissectors are using the reassembly routines
correctly a fix belongs in the reassembly routine.

I have a capture with alot of TCP Retransmissions and all the  
retransmitted packages are added to the protocol reassembly, which  
obvious is not correct as the fragments are added more than once and  
out of order.  The protocols in this case are COTP and RTSE.

Is this a common problem?
Should this be fixed in the dissectors or the reassembly routines?
