This is related to BIT-1398 but that includes some more information so I'm going to close this one.

> By the way: you have in my opinion a problem with packet dumping. If the
> trace contains VLAN or MPLS, you strip off VLAN/MPLS and if then you
> dump the packet, then the dumped trace is missing the Ethernet header
> for these packets, while the Ethernet header is still there for packets
> which did not have VLAN/MPLS. My previous GTP-detunneling did the same
> mistake, now I have introduced a fake Ethernet header so that if the
> packet is dumped, is still has its Ethernet header.
