Hi Beth,

Things have been tightened up to prevent crashes from
happening. Seems that your dissector does something it shouldn't.

out your debugger and see what it tells you.

I wrote some plugins under
1.2.x awhile back, which have been used successfully for some time now.

I tried using them with 1.4.0 (hey it was worth a shot :) but got an
error so I downloaded the 1.4.0 tarball and rebuilt them. However I
still get the error! Can those of you with 1.4 knowledge suggest where I
should start looking for the problem? The error is simply:

Warn Dissector bug, protocol MyProto, in packet 1:
STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION: dissector accessed an invalid memory address

Whatever it is, it's something that happens with 1.4.0 but not with
1.2.11 . I have not (yet) touched the plugin source code.
suggestions appreciated!
