In the detail view for the packet that has "Packet Size limited during capture", the topmost line ("Frame {N}") should say "{N} bytes on wire, {M} bytes captured" (it might also give some numbers of bits).  Is {N} greater than {M}?  If so, that's the problem - the packets were captured with a snapshot length specified, so that at most the first {M} bytes of the packet were saved to the file.
