If you mean "it's not unusual that random stuff happens if two dissectors register with the same value in a given dissector table", that is correct.  We make no guarantee that this will do what the developer of the dissector, or the user, wants - in particular, we make no guarantee which dissector will win.

Try disabling the dissector for the protocol whose dissector you don't want called.
