Heuristic dissector not called


I was wondering why my heuristic dissector was not being called (adwin_config). After setting "Try heuristic sub-dissectors first" in TCP-Settings, my dissector was called (took me a while to find that out...). Before setting the option "Try heuristic sub-dissectors first" the TCP payload was not dissected by any dissector (at least, wireshark did not display anything for the payload).

So does "Try heuristic sub-dissectors first" basically disable heuristic dissectors completely? That is not, what the name suggests. How can I find out why my dissector is not being called?
