Then the problem isn't barnyard.

Base gets its info from the db.  If you run the following query, you will 
see what's there:
select sig_id,sig_name from signature;

If you have entries in there that look like this:
Snort Alert [1:3192:0]

Then you either don't have an entry for the signature (e.g. sid:3192) in 
the sid-msg.map or you need to restart barnyard so it can parse the file 
again.  Every time the sid-msg.map changes, barnyard has to be HUP'd so it 
can reread the file.
