this doesn't read as i intended it... the rule detects the malformed upnp 
advertisement and alerts on that... the data in the pcap is what snort caught 
and recorded... it may or may not have something to do with barnyard2's

this was written as i intended... the barnyard folks may need to look at this in 
case there's a bug in their processing due to this particular packet... unless, 
of course, the barnyard log contains other information about it...
