I've written a patch to check for duplicate entries (i.e. the same value) in the value_string used for hf items.
What I found was there are places where error codes are taken from multiple places, but often have identical strings, so there is no real harm...

The patch I'm attaching also checks in the case of matching values that the string is the same too, and warns on those.  I also attached the output I just got from starting up wireshark here.  I don't think this patch should be checked in, but it might possible be to do a similar check in one of the scripts in the tools folder?

Best regards,

Thanks !
I think it is better to add this check in checkAPIs.pl script

Also I'm fix issue in packet-isakmp.c file (about cp_version table) in rev37240
