I'm using Net BSD 3 current and Snort 2.4.4.

I can't suppress the 'Tagged Packet' alert which is producing thousands of 
false positives and swamping my database.

All other suppression and thresholding works fine.

I have the following in threshold.conf

# Suppress Tagged Packet
suppress gen_id 2, sig_id 1, track by_src, ip x.x.0.0/16
suppress gen_id 2, sig_id 1, track by_dst, ip x.x.0.0/16

gen-msg.map has the following:

2 || 1 || tag: Tagged Packet

Has anyone else seen this?
