When doing service version detection work I sometimes run into a

it does it presents quite a problem.  The recent Oracle fingerprint
was an example of this.  Normally, if I cannot read the data at the
end of the Write request line I just have to guess as to which probe
was just sent and on what protocol.

I have attached a patch that displays additional information when
--version-trace is used.

announcements are sent to LOG_PLAIN, not just LOG_STDOUT; and they get
printed with -d2 as well as --version-trace (as some other messages
