[NPP>] Sorry, yes.

[NPP>] Yes - but even with that the symbols did not show in the DLL (but were global in the .lib). Adding a (dummy) register function to the file and moving it to the registered dissector files part of the makefile made the symbols show up (both steps were needed). Very strange: I certainly don't understand why.
