This sounds like a packager versioning
issue, as your previous email had you
upgrading to a fixes/32 version.  You
may want to contact your packager.

And this further suggest fixes/32

As Klaas said, the adaptation field is optional in
a transport stream packet.  To make things even
more interesting, the adaptation field itself has
multiple optional extensions.  If there is no
adaptation field, or the packet is otherwise chosen
not to be processed, one would not encounter
the bug.

Someone would have to go back and check the
logs, but I suspect fixes/32 is the first packaged
version update with the array changes which is
why you are encountering the issue now.
