I'm getting extreme packet loss using Version 1.8-beta8 (Build 33).

Snort received 242899 packets and dropped 3692706(93.828%) packets

Breakdown by protocol:                Action Stats:
TCP: 233890     (5.943%)          ALERTS: 203
UDP: 7435       (0.189%)          LOGGED: 203
ICMP: 762        (0.019%)          PASSED: 4900
ARP: 0          (0.000%)
IPv6: 0          (0.000%)

Running a tcpdump is clean (at a different time but with similar
load), no packets dropped.  

LogMessage was called 9058 times prior to this with the message

  WARNING: Fishy TWH from client!

Is there a way to identify the fishy client with some S:s->D:d in the
