Do you have a sample lua script to show this?  I'm using the following  
test script, which works as expected in version 1.2.3.  I think we may  
have an issue with the new packet list in 1.3.x, because this script  
does not work correctly in 1.3.x when building with the new packet  
list.  The old packet list still works.

udp_len_f = Field.new("udp.length")
test_proto = Proto ("test", "Test Protocol")

function test_proto.dissector (buffer, pinfo, tree)
  pinfo.cols.info = "Test"

  local udp_len = udp_len_f()
  if udp_len then
    pinfo.cols.info = "UDP length: " .. udp_len.value
