[Bro] Question on file hashes and cyrmu db

Thanks to a few of you for helping me offline for this, I was sidetracked on
other projects. I'm noticing some inconsistencies with Bro and the Cymru Hash
Servce on my Bro box (2.3)
1. When i download some files I expect to match through the service, it fails
but it matches virustotal when I enter the MD5/SHA1 hash on their site.
2. When I do get some matches from Cymru, I don't get the entry in notice.log
via the detect bro script.
I did change the detect-MHR.bro and made the following changes: changed the
percent down to 1 (just to test) and added the .zip mime extension
I am running with checksums disabled and I've experienced this on a few bro
boxes including a virtual I have loaded. For others who are doing dynamic
analysis of files for malware/viruses, is this the best approach? Is there
anything else I could try before I dig deeper into the code? I've verified
it's nothing stupid like DNS queries failing, what I haven't done is started to
dump the SHA256 to see if I have better luck with this hash value.
Also, the script seems to work with pcap files that people have provided so the
network could be the issue but I don't see any signs of packet loss, frame
errors or other data.
