Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] NCP Protocol Info field

Quick question about the Info fields of ncp.ndsverb == 0x1 fields (NDS Resolve Name) in Wireshark 0.99.6a in Windows XP.

If it is a servername, then for some reason the fully qualified name (e.g. \T=TREE\O=OU\CN=SERVER) is appended with a string similar to ?\?wp ?w???????wj?0g then after that there are another 5 characters that differ with each packet, but at least one is a double-byte ASCII character of a square with four 0 in it (like when you try and display Chinese characters without the correct fonts).

I know that this is cosmetic, but this didn't appear in Ethereal 0.99.0 loaded on the same machine from my memory. Any idea why this is happening?
