Hi, all

In the description of 3GPP TS 32.295, empty test packet(s) (with no CDR payload in the Data Record Packet IE but just the other parts of the message frame) in some error handling scenarios. "If an "empty packet" is to be sent, then the Data Record Packet IE contains only the Type (with value 252 in decimal) and the Length (with value 0) fields.".

However, the "empty" packet is interpreted as "Malformed Packet(Exception occurred)" in the wireshark release of 1.12.0-rc2, 1.10.8, 1.11.2. Is there any bugs in wireshark for interpreting this kind of messages?

Yes, that's probably a bug; please file a bug report at the Wireshark Bugzilla, preferably with a capture demonstrating the problem attached, so we can track it.
