I don't follow your description here.  When I think of a sid I think of
the number that uniquely identifies a snort rule in a rulefile.  I'm not
sure how barnyard could "trip over" that identifier.  What exactly are
you trying to achieve, how did you configure the behavior with your
previous tools, and what's misbehavior that you're observing now with

I'm not following the failure-mode here, either.  What did you expect to
happen and what did you observe instead?
