For Radius messages, the "Info" column shows the packet ID and length in packet list window, like: alt text

So just curious: Why is the length field displayed here? Is it of any special purpose to be here?

No special reason, other than the author decided to do so. Maybe he had an issue with crippled frames. At least there is no comment in the source code that gives any better explanation.
