Hi Hanx Hi,

First i would suggest that you update to latest barnyard2

You changed the priority, for it to be set correctly you would need to delete
the rule you have inserted in the database and re-run barnyard2.

The rule would then be at the good priority (if you have changed it
betwen the first insertion
and a later insertion).

Hope this helps,
