[RFA] fix minor bug in malformed packet error message

This patch fixes a minor bug in malformed packet error messages.
The error message tries to print the start of where things go bad,
but due to the `*p++ != mumble' test the ++ causes the first character
character to be missed.

ok to check in?

	in error output.
