Signature Description Oddness

When I upgraded some of my sensors to 184.108.40.206, I saw some weird stuff in my
Base Signature Table
I two different sig_name's for the same signatures (in about 6 case). I'll
detail one instance.
Gid: 142, sid: 6
One Description is: pop: 7bit/8bit/binary/text Extraction failed
The other Description is: pop: Non-Encoded MIME attachment Extraction failed
So I looked at the gen-msg.map on the various systems/versions.
220.127.116.11 shipped with: 142 || 6 || pop: Non-Encoded MIME attachment
18.104.22.168 shipped with: 142 || 6 || pop: Non-Encoded MIME attachment
That's fine, no change between versions.
But when I look in the rules tarballs, the following are in those
22.214.171.124 tarball: 142 || 6 || pop: 7bit/8bit/binary/text Extraction failed
126.96.36.199 tarball: 142 || 6 || pop: 7bit/8bit/binary/text Extraction failed
So the tarball is shipping with different descriptions for some of the
So which description is correct? I would have thought if the description
pop: Non-Encoded MIME attachment Extraction failed
in 188.8.131.52, and then it changed to:
pop: 7bit/8bit/binary/text Extraction failed
and was therefore changed in the tarball, then shouldn't 184.108.40.206's release
have reflected this change?
Or are the files in the tarball never pulled forward to a new release?
Just want to make sure I know which description is the right one. I am
guessing the one in the tarball, just need confirmation.
