[linux-dvb] a strange EIT Section

I'm playing around with a si-parser and encountered a strangeness.
I supposed when using the section-demux-API and providing a large enough
buffer for reading, I always get a complete (valid?) section. Indeed, this
works most of the time. The following example is a section I received
The first 8 bytes of the table header:
68 61 6E 20 68 65 69 72 han heir
obviously trash, it is part of the section maybe... the binary data goes
on: "aten wo.lgn, macht di. Sache ni.ht besser"
and what the parser made of it:
table_id = 68 104 (is a valid EIT table_id, but not on PID 0x12?)
section_syntax_indicator = 0 0
reserved_future_use0 = 1 1
reserved0 = 2 2
section_length = 16e 366 (valid, the packet is 369 bytes)
service_id = 2068 8296
reserved1 = 1 1
Who should take card about such problems? The parser or the section-dmx of
the DVB API?
thanks for your help,
