Apologies for not replying sooner, I just got most of this thread in one
fell swoop (not sure I actually have the whole thing yet, I still don't
see the original message).

I suspect you are also looking at the UDP header in the packet, don't
forget that Snort knows about this and starts it's detection after the
UDP header. The packet display from Snort will show you the whole thing.

Anyway, not a lot more I can say without seeing the packets causing the
event to occur.
