Hi All,

I want to read some data from a UAT while I am still in the registration functions. Going through the documentation and the code, it seems that all UAT tables are loaded when preferences are being read, and that if some registration needs to be done after preferences have been loaded, then it should be from inside proto_reg_handoff_protoname. My questions are:
- is my understanding correct?
- if not, is what I am trying to do possible at all?
I am trying to revise the patch which I submitted originally for https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3242

Thanks,
Abhik.
