[Snort-sigs] MS-SQL Ping false positives

All,

The MS-SQL Ping rule (SID 2049) seems to generate nothing but false 
positives.  I don't know why, but I have seen it false alarm on traffic 
sent by hosts that I believe are SQL Servers that is sent to 
255.255.255.255.  I don't know what this traffic is actually for, 
however.  The payload is always one byte, 0x02.

Can anyone else confirm this as a false alarm?  Even better, can they 
tell me what this traffic is?
