[Snort-users] -z est missing alerts?

 From another machine, I start lynx and access http://target/../../
Snort catches this as a directory traversal rule.

I then restart snort with -z est and hit ctrl-r on lynx. Snort doesn't see
this anymore. I remove the -z est switch, hit ctrl-r and snort sees the
attack again.

Has anybody experienced something like this?
I'm about to do more thorough testing to make sure I'm not fooling myself.
