Detailed Description

Exception thrown during option unpacking This exception is thrown when an error has occurred unpacking an option from a packet and rather than drop the whole packet, we wish to simply skip over the option (i.e.

omit it from the unpacked results), and resume unpacking with the next option in the buffer. The intent is to allow us to be liberal with what we receive, and skip nonsensical options rather than drop the whole packet. This exception is thrown, for instance, when string options are found to be empty or to contain only nuls.
