Yes, the fields will be added to the fields struct, but when
proto_tree_get_node_field_values() goes through the fields, it
uses get_node_field_value() to get the actual value. This function
returned NULL when a fields was of type FT_NONE. I committed a
patch that makes it return "1" instead.

Could you check an automated build from:

In a couple of hours you should see a version 24158 or higher that 
will contain the fix.
