 While you may have re-inserted these fields into the ./create_mysql
 script, the snort database plugin will no longer populate them. 
 Hence, you won't get the "backward" compatability you desire.

 Only v0.9.6b11 (currently found in CVS) will work with
 schema v103.  This _may_ be why you are seeing unknown 
 src/dst IP addresses.

 As of 0.9.6b9, bcmath is explicitely required.  As you noted, as
 of PHP 4.0.4, bcmath is included _in the PHP distribution_.
 However, while you may not need to install any additional files,
 you still need to build support for it.  Did you explicitely use
 --enable-bcmath at the ./configure script?  Without this
 switch, PHP will NOT be built with this functionality, and 
 consequently ACID will generate the above error message.
