When I run a pcap file with my dissector in place wireshark crashes 
(win32.dll error).

But I was able to run the pcap file and stop the loading process before 
it crashed and one thing that I noticed
was in the info column it said "Packet Size limited during capture".

I never saw this before...does anybody know what this means..?? Could 
this be why it was crashing..??

MM- I have seen "Packet Size limited during capture" due to a bug where
a dissector assumed that a PDU always had a data segment at the end, but
occasionally one didn't.  That would not directly cause your crash, you
probably have 2 bugs.

Try running with a breakpoint in do_throw() (around line 182 in except
.c), on a trace that has only the packet(s) that cause the problem.
