Thanks! I figured as much but would it not make more sense to actually
list them in bit order? RFC793 clearly shows the bits as being, from
left to right in the header

	Reserved U A P R S F

While snort is placing them as

	Reserved S R F P A U

The other question is, why the heck is this NT box sending such illegal
packets to my mail hub? Time for investigation.
