I'm having almost exactly the same issue, and would be very interested 
to know if anyone has worked out a good solution to this.  For the time 
being, I've disabled the portsweep scan, since that seem to create the 
greatest number of useless alerts,

Solutions would be what Rob said above, or to be able to filter by port 
(as in, ignore "portsweeps" to EXTERNAL_NET on ports 80 and 443).
