[Snort-users] http_inspect firing, despite no_alerts, suppression

I'm seeing http_inspect events trigger despite my attempts at
disabling such alerts.

# uname -v
FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p4 #0: Fri Oct  2 08:22:32 UTC 2009 root at ...14866...:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC

Command line:
/usr/local/bin/snort -i bridge0 -c /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf -A fast -q -D -c /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf

#grep http_inspect /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf

preprocessor http_inspect: global \
    iis_unicode_map unicode.map 1252 
preprocessor http_inspect_server: server default \
    profile all ports { 80 8080 8180 } oversize_dir_length 500 no_alerts

Shouldn't this prevent alerts since I don't have any other server
definitions?  I'm still getting MULTIPLE CONTENT LENGTH hits every
once in a while.
