The relay-or-info-attept classification was accidentally omitted until one
of the updates on May 31st, so it has only been fixed for about a week.
Thanks to Roeland Weve for reporting the omission.

Also the 'snort -T -c rulestotest.conf' doesn't notice if a classfication
is missing.  I had seen:
 "Snort sucessfully loaded all rules and checked all rule chains!"
