That does raise an interesting question - if a pattern matches *more
than one* field in a packet, should "find next" find the next instance
that matches, even if it's in the same packet, or should it find the
next instance in that packet and, if there is no next instance in that
packet, search subsequent packets? There are probably places where the
former is useful and places where the latter is useful.
The current implementation of the search does only find the first  
instance in a packet.  In my scenario I have alot of elements in each  
packet, with many matching the search criteria.  I would really like  
to find each of them when performing a search.
