[Udpcast] updcast packet capture issue

Thank you.  You were correct.  I no longer have this problem.  I also
deduced that there is a sequence number in the multicast frame.

I'm digging into this utility as I currently have a scenario where I get a
bunch of duplicate frames hitting the udp-receiver (network issue, not
application issue) and the application does not gracefully handle it.  I
figured that the application did not have a sequence number.  As it does,
there must be some other problem.  More to come.
