Hi Joerg,

Actually, I discovered the problem when (by mistake) I captured the
trace without the "-s 0" option passed to tcpdump. So, actually a
large part of the MSU has already been lost. There is no way of
knowing what the next nibble was in the original packet, so adding a 0
in the end would actually produce an incorrect last byte (and the MSU
would still be incomplete), but removing the last nibble at least
ensures that whatever is passed to the MTP3 dissector (even though
incomplete) is what was received.

So, I think Jeff's approach is OK.

Best regards,
