wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] 6lowpan dissector in 1.4

[Wireshark-dev] 6lowpan dissector in 1.4

I created some plugins for Wireshark 1.2.x, including a 6lowpan dissector
that reassembled fragmented messages. Once the final fragment had been
received and the original payload reassembled, the dissector would then call
itself recursively in order to make sure subdissectors got their chance to
dissect the contents.

Now that I've rebuilt my plugins for 1.4, I don't need my 6lowpan plugin any
more of course. However the builtin one doesn't appear to reassemble
6lowpan messages. It parses each fragment correctly, but never seems to do
any processing of the full payload.

Just wondering whether this is a bug, or if not, then how might my
subdissectors acquire the reassembled payload for dissection?
