Thx! I've sent the Barnyard2 folks an email letting them know that BY2
will need to reference sid-msg.map for gid:138 alerts in order to
properly populate the rule message. I think it currently only does
this for gid:1 since, I believe, this is the first time a rule is
required to use a GID other than 1.
