Don't you have to parse the whole file to find those ?
Technically, if you find two packets with the same serialno,
it is possible that they'd be *different* logical streams just
happening to have the same serial, which would be OK if
there was another stream in the middle with *another* serial.
OK, maybe that's very unlikely, but still legal.
