Are you sure that the packets are 106 bytes and not 96 bytes?  The reason 
that I ask is because Nachi/Welchia packets were 96 bytes.  If these really 
are 106 bytes, then they're something new.  The payload is the same size as 
Nachi, and everything else looks like Nachi, but the packet size is off by 
10 bytes.
