[Snort-users] Snort 2.9, barnyard2, and unknown record types

I can't keep barnyard2 running on unified2 files generated by snort (64-bit RHEL5). A couple times a day, it chokes on a bad record. This never happened with 2.8.6.

I got things to "work" for a while by hacking barnyard2-1.9-beta1 to ignore (return 0) record type 110, but now I'm seeing record type 4, which doesn't even appear in sfutil/Unified2_common.h.

What should I be looking at to figure this out?

I've reverted production to 2.8.6. Still have a test running 2.9.
