I have done some more work on this now:  Brian asked me to run snort
with just that single rule and see what happened.  I did this and set
the -b flag and things worked as they should.  I sent Brian a tcpdump
file with logged packets and the snort rule file.  After this I went
back to running my primary snort with -b and can confirm that I get the
packets logged this way.

However I also use snortsnarf which requires the packet logs in the
default ascii format. So I rerun snort on the binary log file as
recomended in the snortsnarf documentation but the alerts are missing
entirely from the second run.
