this is the dynamic shared object rules... did you download new rules and 
replace them, too??

we used to always delete everything in the dynamicrules and dynamicpreprocessor 
directories... if we were using the shared object rules, those had to go, too... 
plus they had to be disabled until they had been updated on the next scheduled 
rules update run...

we've never done that... didn't ever need to...
