The portscan preprocessor is detecting "stealth" packets. They will be
alerted on regardless of whether or not you have the source host defined
in portscan-ignorehosts. There are some good examples of why this
occurs in the archives of this mailing list. Most recently, it is
caused by ENC packets with Linux 2.4 kernels.
