Hi Rick,

Whenever this has happened to me it's always turned out to be the sid-msg.map file.  Rebuilding usually solves the problem for me. 

If you are using oinkmaster I believe it comes with create-sidemap.pl
something like:  create-sidmap.pl /path/to/rules/ > /path/to/snort/sid-msg.map  

Good luck,
Scott
