Hi Janosch,

If the first bit of the snac flag is set there is additional data before the
actual packet data (see http://iserverd1.khstu.ru/oscar/basic.html#b0002).
The number of additional bytes (that you have to skip) is contained in the
word following the request id. That means you have to skip 6 bytes, namely
00 01 00 02 00 02. Afterwards your actual SSI list data starts.
