   OK, I found, but this is very weird. Although I already noticed 
similar snort behavior. Sometimes it doesn't like the spaces in 
config/rules. Some time ago, few of my custom rules didn't work just 
because there was (e.g.) 'content: "<something>"', instead of 
'content:"<something>"'. This time it happened to subnet list in 
HOME_NET. It was defined like 'HOME_NET [<subnet>, <subnet>]'. Right 
after I removed the space after the comma, the rule started to apply.
   Anyway, the rule now works as expected.
