[Snort-users] preprocessor ftp_telnet_protocol: FP on spaces

The preprocessor ftp_telnet_protocol always FPs when there is a space in
(e.g.) the CWD command (or any other, for that matter). How do I stop
these alerts? The README.ftptelnet is of no help here. Reading the guide
PDF indicates that I might be able to override this with

	cmd_validity CWD < string > (in the case of the CWD FP)

but this is not clear. I suppose I could try it...
