After the new install, first run, I noticed those events. After sending the
note about odd events, I refreshed the database, removed the logs and
restarted. Those were the events I posted, from the second new run.

Latest version of Snort, and 310 of barnyard2

I'm not sure about u2spewfoo

Are you able to reproduce it with an empty log directory and restarting

Or did someone sent you a unified2 file?

What version of snort was used to produce that unified2 file?

But the essence of the message is  that barnyard2 read a unified2 packet
event and it was sent to the output plugin but since there is no cached
event or previously read event that matches, processing will not go further
since we need a unified2 event (read previously or cached) and a packet to
log to the database.

You also might want to observe the unified2 file structure by using
