Not exactly. This and some other SAP failures are triggered by incorrect
order of non-important fields at session level (b=, a= etc.), where the
new SAP parser rejects the whole SAP announcement. 

So yes, 0.9.2 accepts noticably less SAPs from the global multicast
network than 0.8.6 and complains very loud with the above messages.

Although SAPs with incorrect order of fields are definitely not RFC
compliant, beeing more liberal in what we accept wouldn't hurt.

    With kind regards,
