Did that have portscans setup correctly?  You might want to check the
portscan settings, it might be too tightly wound for your uses.

in classificaation.config of course.  I'm writing a README.priority,
but for now the documentation in classification.config should be
enough to start.

Correct.  SF has been notified of the change, but they are massively
busy over there.  Too many exploits, too many vulnerabilities, too

hasn't been released yet, so they have a short bit of time :)
