I always get a "Malformed Packet" for ICMP Redirect Message. Does anyone have an idea why or what the problem is?

That's not the Redirect that gives you the error, it's the Echo inside the redirected header ICMP field that gets the dissector spooked when it's cut short. Not an error in this case.
You could file this nicely documented error on bugs.wireshark.org (don't forget to attach this sample capture) for it to be fixed in an upcoming release.
