[Snort-devel] frag2 problems

Linux-Mandrake 8.1, kernel 2.4.18-pre3, gcc 2.96, latest cvs snort 
pulled from SNORT_1_8.

I just updated snort to the latest in SNORT_1_8 and started noticing a 
few problems with frag2. In less than 15 minutes, snort logged close to 
50,000 alerts running against two /16 networks. All of the alerts are 
listed as "spp_frag2: Teardrop attack". Looking through the output in 
tcpdump shows that they _are_ fragmented packets (don't know why),
but they are definitely _not_ teardrop attacks. Any ideas?
