this is because you have to remove the old dynamic compiled preprocessors... 
we've have seen it when we have had clients backlevel their snort for some 
reason and left newer preprocessor and .so rules in place... you can also see it 
if you have a newer snort and older so rules...

so, yes, using the proper rules versions for your snort version is very important...
