[Snort-sigs] sigs with asn1 fails

Our customer had the snortrules-current-2.1 tarball + our software runs an
md5 on it, which matched the md5 of the tarball on snort.org. Unfortunately,
we deleted it after having to push out the correct rules to all the agents.
Perhaps the cvs update burped and several of us downloaded the 2-1 tarball
just as the right time?

Uh, fix the problem every single time?  I've never seen the rules get
asn1 added to them.  These files are generated automagically every hour from
a simple cvs update & tar.

If you see it, send me the complete tgz and I'll look into it.
