Hi All, 

I have not been able to get file extraction working consistently. I run Suricata 3.2.2 in Debian. I have some of the more important settings below. The issue is that Suricata is able to see the PDF as evidenced in the log line below. I have the rule enabled and I have supplied the rule below. Suricata also recognizes that this file is a PDF as referenced in the "magic" section of the log. 

If I turn on other file types they seem to work. 

As a secondary issue, the few PDFs that have been extracted successfully have been truncated and seem incomplete.
