Oh, BTW..

This doesn't help you any because the the snort decoder events are not
documented yet, but some documentation preprocessor events are now
available via the web now.

Information for your specific event (gen 116, sid 108), had the
documentation for that preprocessor event been done already, would
have been available here:


Right now, only the http_inspect preprocessor event documentation is
done.   But, we are working on it.  Feel free to contribute.
