icmp.ident - separate combined column for be/le
OSQA (old Q&A site) - Some questions about ICMP dissection
Version 2.2.5 (v2.2.5-0-g440fd4d5)
icmp.ident Identifier (BE) Unsigned integer, 2 bytes 1.0.0 to 2.2.5
icmp.seq Sequence number (BE) Unsigned integer, 2 bytes 1.0.0 to 2.2.5
icmp.seq_le Sequence number (LE) Unsigned integer, 2 bytes 1.4.0 to 2.2.5
- When added as a column: icmp.seq and icmp.seq_le display two bytes and only one copy (be/le) which is properly formatted. icmp.ident displays both be and le in the same column
- None of them seem to sort properly when column header clicked in 2.2.5
- Is the ICMP dissector in a dll/binary or is there an ASCII file with its config?
Item 3 - What is packet-icmp.c for $500 Alex ?
Item 2 - fixed here? - Numeric Field values defined with BASE_UNIT_STRING do not sort numerically - commits to master-2.4 and master
Confirmed with downloads from all-versions that sorting works in 2.4.0 but not 2.2.17.
Item 1 - submitting !1082 (merged) to fix typo in
hf_icmp_ident_le field definition
Original code added here: Clean up the icmp info column per discussion in bug #4014.
Clean up the icmp info column per discussion in bug #4014 (closed).
Change to using new ENC_[BIG|LITTLE]_ENDIAN instead of FALSE and TRUE in the proto_tree_add_item() calls for the identifier and sequence numbers.

Thanks to Chris for the detailed answer - was a bit over my head at that time.
And to @rknall for encouraging me at sf19us to open a bugzilla case.
A mere 18 months (or 3-1/2 years depending on how you count) I'm fixing it myself. :-)
