I am happy to work to make the patch, it would help if you could provide some 
hints where in the code I should look... when I went searching for seqCnt I 
found a packet-constructor function run in a loop when applying a 
packet-sequence operation. Is the packet-constructor the right place or should 
I look somewhere else?
