I guess the problem results from the missing sensor table entry.

If you mention a sensor_id greater zero in output alert_acid_db
then barnyard will use this id without checking if it exists.

So at first remove either this part or set: sensor_id 0

BTW: A hostname of localhost is a bad sensor name...

Best regards
