Not necessarily.  While I didn't look at the trace yet, the goal of Wireshark
is to dissect "as much as possible".  Based on the recent additions to the
Profinet dissector, I thought the issue would be with all of the "device
information" being stored and retrieved.  And the handling of that, may not
correctly handle "bad data"/malformed packet.
