Hi Seth,

Thanks for your response.  GeoIP lookups are working for our HTTP logs 
(code we added) and the SSH logs when auth_success==F.  It's only not 
working with SSH when auth_success==T, and in this case it apparently is 
partially working since there are watched country entries in the notice 
log for successful SSH connections, but the SSH log does not contain the 
geodata for these successful connections it's altering on (see the two 
log lines I had in my initial mail for evidence of this).
