Created wireshark tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1697956]

Comment 3 Riccardo Schirone 2019-05-16 08:06:01 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of wireshark as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 as they did not include support for Osmocom Generic Subscriber Update Protocol (GSUP).
