They all share the same process name "SC Alert". The packets look correctly formed so I am assuming it is the space in the process name. Any way to fix this without dropping the messages completely using something like bad_hostname? We are running 2.1.11a Enterprise Edition.

bad_hostname() was invented for this purpose. Or the 3.0.x versions
provide rewrite functionality that lets you fix things like this.
