Assuming that [slipdec] works as designed, one possible scenario is that
the sender packs many OSC packets into one SLIP packet, thus the SLIP
packet length is actually longer than 65536 although none of the
contained OSC packet is of that size.
If you assume a bug in [slipdec], you'd have to inspect more deeply the
data it is receiving. This basically means: How many floats do you count
between the start byte 192 and the end byte 192?

How are you generating the OSC-in-SLIP packets? With Pd? With
[packOSCstream]? Or with some other software? Are you sure the other
software adheres to the OSC 1.1 standard?
