What does this mean "SPOOLSS 'Malformed Packet (Exception occurred)'?
It means that the SPOLLSS dissector encountered something unexpected.   
Sometimes the packet is in fact malformed, but even then, the  
dissector should handle it more gracefully instead of throwing an  
exception.  It could also be a normal packet and a dissector bug.  If  
you could open a bug at https://bugs.wireshark.org and attach a sample  
capture file that shows that error when loaded into Wireshark, someone  
will take a look at it.
