Frank,

I only skimmed your code, so it may be that you have this covered already,
but do remember that your dissector will not always be called with the
packets in sequential order. (It will be called with each packet in turn
initially, but will then be called again for each packet the user clicks
on). So if there's more than one request in the conversation, you need to
make sure that you are cross-referencing to the right one when dissecting
responses.

Cheers

Richard
