Hi Pedro,

that is easy to explain: Only ACID fills the acid tables...

The acid output plugin of barnyard is used to fill the database
scheme which is used by acid. The acid tables are extensions made
by acid to the database and is mainly used for caching or building
up alert groups within acid.

So don't blame barnyard for this...
