Try to figure out what actually goes into the SNMP messages. Either
turn 'snmp watch on' and look at the varbinds (just to make sure the
problem is really on scotty's part). An alternative is to run tcpdump
which produces more human readable output (the latest version on is able to load MIBs using libsmi).

Once you have proven that the problem lies within scotty, try to
figure out whether you can create simpler example (e.g. one which only
modifies sysLocation.0) since the problem should not depend on what
you are trying to set.
