Decoding AVTP Control frames

I see that AVTP control frames are not being decoded even-though cd bit in the header field is 1. Wire shark always decodes AVTP packet with ether-type = 0x22F0 and cd = 1 as AVTP data frames. Is this expected behavior in wire shark?

I am using wireshark Version: 1.12.2

On further analysis i see that wireshark takes the subtype field of AVTP packet as 8 bits, but as per IEEE1722 spec it is 7 bits. CD bit is getting merged in to subtype field in wireshark, hence control frames are not decoded.

Note:I tried this on the latest version of wireshark:Version 2.4.5

If the latest version of Wireshark is incorrectly dissecting AVTP frames, please file a bug on the Wireshark Bugzilla, and, if possible, attach a sample capture that shows the problem.
