This code uses g_slice_new(), which was introduced in glib 2.10.  Looking at
configure.in, isn't 2.4 the minimum supported version of glib ?
I missed that. Thanks.

I'm cc'ing the dissector author so he can take a look at it.

(I'll determine a fix if there's no response in a few days).
Other parts of Wireshark use GMemChunks instead of the GLib slice 
allocator.  Although when using GLib 2.10+, GMemChunks is written to use 
the slice allocator anyway.  I haven't looked at the code in question 
above, but this may be the way to go to maintain backwards 

I've just noticed that the Solaris buildbot is failing on this.

I'll submit a change shortly.
