Thanks for the clarification - I only suggested that you look at it as I
could personally use this rule in the unix snort distribution 1.6.3 -
but had heard two reports from win32 users that they had trouble (and
had not heard other reports of unix trouble until your email above)

`I am running the Win32 1.6.3 ver... and have the ":' problem` -Sean D
`I am using Snort version 1.6.3 running on Windows NT.` -Brent E

I guess the only odd thing is that it works fine for me under 1.6.3 on
Redhat 6.2.  I'll have a look since I seem to be the only person reporting
colons working in content rules working...
