While you have a valid point, you should make clear that the rule in 
question, sid:1620, is as far as I know not a part of the active snort ruleset.

There's a reason why "deleted.rules" is called "deleted"... they're known 
to be ineffective and/or broken :)

At least, it was in deleted.rules in 2.0.1, I haven't checked the latest 
cvs's. I can't imagine anyone would have resurrected it from the trashheap 
without fixing it first.
