Hi John,

 Could the dropped semicolon before the sid: field have messed that up?

I think that you are right, actually the parser in suricata-update uses the
semicolon as field separator (see
so if its missing between reference and sid the latter will be swallowed by
the first one. This is also a bad scenario because the swallowed field is
the sid.

Regarding the code it could be nice to have a try-except block arount the
parse function call which could print out on which file and which line
generated the error.
