Description (partial)


Sensor logs message: SignatureDB: TcpRootNode non-zero refcount.
It is unclear if the condition this message describes causes actual instability
in the sensor in practice, but that pointential exists.


The log message is usually seen upon sensor shutdown. The message can
be seen periodically under version 7.0.1 of the sensor, or under other versions
that have been manually configured for a database self-purge interval by TAC.
