Paul,

The answer was snortcenter doesn't know how to handle "byte_test."  The
answer wasn't right in my face or I wouldn't have asked.  I have read
that manual, thanks for the reference though.  Thanks to Eric Johnson
for his link to the sans manual.

page 34 explains the error - his code doesn't know how to handle byte
test.
