Yes...looks like I do. Any thoughts on how I can fix this..??


void proto_reg_handoff_helen(void) {
    static gboolean initialized = FALSE;

    int i;

    for (i = 0; i < 25; i++) {

        if (!initialized) {
            data_handle = find_dissector("data");
helen_handle = create_dissector_handle(dissect_helen, proto_helen);
            dissector_add("udp.port", ports[i], helen_handle);
    initialized = TRUE;

I haven't double-checked, but I exepect the answer is to just reuse the 
handle; ie: create the handle just once rather than creating a new 
handle for each port.
Also: you certainly don't need to find a data_handle multiple times !

So: just loop on the dissector_add.



Theres also a "range" mechanism/idiom which can be used (especially if you want to allow the range to be changed in a preference).
See packet-fix.c for an example.
