I'd given that a shot, I set ALL perms active for "snort", for all tables 
'data' through 'signature_sig_id_seq', has no effect on the result.

As I've got no real database experience, I have effectively exhausted my own
resources on this after googling and checking the archives.

Thanks, if any other ideas come up I'll be happy to try anything.
