you need to ensure that your sid-msg.map is up to date after each pull... there 
are tools available to do this for you...

part of your problem is likely that a sid-msg.map is included in one or more 
rules sets but it only has entries for the rules in that set... if you are 
simply copying it over to the proper location then you are overwriting and 
loosing the others... as i understand it, pulledpork can/will generate the 
sid-msg.map for you... there's also a tool that came with oinkmaster that can do 
this but it generates the older format of sid-msg.map...
