As Jakub pointed out, regardless of the snaplen, if Wireshark is crashing, then the bug is in the dissector, although IMO the biggest bug in the dissector is still the incompatible license.

Brian, please carefully read http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#GPLModuleLicense

Gerald et al, consider this e-mail as a report of a violation of the GPL per http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#ReportingViolation

So until the dissector is properly licensed, I suggest contacting these folks for support on this dissector: http://www.darkcornersoftware.com/contact.html

I just found out that this was captured using tshark.....but nobody 
knows what the snaplen was.

So my questions is....   My code is working correctly then....And that 
this was just a bad judgment of the wrong snaplen......correct..??


It is possible for a dissector bug to throw this exception even with a
perfectly captured packet, see Bug 2855 for example.
