When I try to add dissectors that is not octet-aligned, I found as long as add the following highlighted code the contents of "Hex" view is disappeared. Does anyone know if this is an existing known issue for trunk 1.8.0?

  next_tvb = tvb_new_octet_aligned(tvb, offset, tbs[i]);
  add_new_data_source(pinfo, next_tvb, "MyProt PDU"); // add this line of code the HEX view is disappeared
  call_dissector(my_handle, next_tvb, pinfo, tree);
