I'm using ACID v0.96b7 and snort Version 1.7-CanSec (Build 8)

I think there are still some problems with selection, but not in the
two tests I did below.

I went to Unique Alerts: and did your scenario for
a particular alert and got "Successfully deleted 1549 alert(s)"

I used your scenario exactly deleting 2274 alerts ("INFO FTP anonymous FTP")
  and got "Successfully deleted 2274 alert(s)"
