Please explain futher.

The portscan module is only called when there is a new unique flow
correct. He's not trying to get it to alert on existing flows.

What Kevin is seeing is that when the score is reincremented (from
flows), the event is not thrown again.

That hints at sep->alert_flags and scores not being completely reset
on alert like I was going for.
