A NullPointerException at that location can be caused
only by a NULL request ID. How you managed to
be NULL - I don't know.
Normally, SNMP4J takes care to set it. So you must have
done something special.

A SNMP packet fragementation does not exists on UDP
level in the way you described it (two packets with their
own header).
