Running 2.9.3.1

I'd like to suppress a lot of alerts created by some generators, in
particular although I want the functionality of the http_inspect
preprocessor I'm not interested in the alerts it raises.

In my threshold.conf I have:

suppress gen_id 120, sig_id 1
suppress gen_id 120, sig_id 2
suppress gen_id 120, sig_id ...

but if I replace this with

suppress gen_id 120, sig_id 0

as documented at http://manual.snort.org/node19.html snort refuses to
start with the following error

"ERROR: threshold.conf(74) suppress could not be created"

Has this feature been removed?

James
