I see the same behaviour with snort 2.0 (build 49), too. There seems to
be another problem in stream4 which produces these false postives. The
debug output I get seems show three "reassembly tries" for one session.

If the reassembled "chunks" match snort-signatures it alerts for the
chunks, e.g.:

HELO myhost         -> alert
HELO myhost.domain  -> alert

... the fully reassembled stream:

HELO myhost.domain.tld|0d0a| -> alert

I'll try to get a pcap-file of one of these false alert to mail it to
