Hello. I observed a quite strange behaviour. If I disable dissectors over [Analyze->Enabled Protocols] panel, they still are registered on their BTP/UDP/TCP... ports in [Internals->Dissector tables->Integer tables]. Is it a bug or a feature? :-)

A feature ...
They are registered but disabled. (IOW: a dissector registered on a port but disabled is not called thus allowing another dissector (e.g., a heuristic dissector) to be called).
The entries shown for disabled protocols should probably have an indication as being disabled.
Feel free to file an enhancement request at bugs.wireshark.ord :)
