I'm using Wireshark 1.0.0. When decoding a snoop capture of SNMP traffic I'm receiving the
following error message:

[Dissector bug, protocol SNMP: proto.c:932: failed assertion
"DISSECTOR_ASSERT_NOT_REACHED"]

I have a coworker who is running 99.6a and he is able to decode the capture file with no
error. Am I missing something here or is this a bug?
As the word "bug" in the message suggests, this is a bug. :-)

It's also a bug that probably has nothing to do with it being a snoop capture. Please file a bug at bugs.wireshark.org, and, if possible, attach to the bug a capture file that shows the error. (If you save a capture containing only the packet that gets that assertion, and reading that capture shows the error, just attach that.)
