Yeah, and I though we're using glib functions for memory management. All this realloc and memcpy look ugly.

        proto_register_field_array(proto_tpncp, &hf[index], 1);
Is it really necessary?
Why proto_register_field_array(proto_tpncp, hf, hf_size); can not be used?
I have probably missed something.
