Add a cast to try and fix
packet-rtpproxy.c:226: warning: implicit conversion shortens 64-bit
value into
a 32-bit value

I'm not quite sure what's going on here, all the values in use are
either gint
or guint so they should all be the same size?


        new_offset = tvb_skip_wsp(tvb, offset + (strlen("VF") + 1), -1);

one of the values - the return value of strlen() - is size_t, which isn't
necessarily gint or guint (or, as Mountain Lion's autocorrect would have
it, "hint or guilt" :-)), as it's 64-bit in most if not all 64-bit C
implementations (including MSVC when compiling 64-bit).

Right. I had it in my head for some reason that Mac was ILP64 (in which
case size_t and *int would all be 64-bit) but that's clearly not the case.
I'm not sure where I got that idea from.

I'd make it "(gint)strlen("VF")" (and then I might make it "(sizeof "VF" -
1)", for the benefit of compilers that don't do that for you at compile

Premature optimization is the root of all evil, though I'm not sure I can
say that with a straight face given how much time I've spent recently on
wmem's block allocator :)
