They introduced a couple extra arguments in the mysql output module to help
solve this problem. In the snort.conf file make sure you have on the output
line sensor_name=YOURSENSOR and sid=YOURSENSORID. My looks like

output database: alert, mysql, user=snort dbname=snort
sensor_name=SENSOR-NIC2 sid=1 password=SNORTPASSWORD host=localhost

hope this helps
