Suricata not respecting SID Mgmt list
I am running pfSense 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (amd64) with Suricata VERSION 4.1.6_3 on an SG-2440.
Suricata is inspecting WAN traffic, Inline blocking, with all categories and rules managed with conf files in the SID Mgmt tab.
SID State Order set to Enable,Disable (as I enable entire categories then selectively disable SIDs).
On version 4.1.6_2 all changes to SID Mgmt files reflected in the rules and would enable/disable/block based on how they were configured.
Once I updated to 4.1.6_3 Suricata stopped respecting the "Disabled" conf file selected in the Disable SID List dropdown for the WAN interface.

There were zero changes to that part of the Suricata code in version 4.1.6_3. In fact, both updates to 4.1.6_2 and 4.1.6_3 were totally about fixes to the GeoIP database download routine. They did not touch the suricata.inc file where all of the SID MGMT functionality logic resides.
So I would suggest closely checking your configuration to see if something is malformed in your disablesid.conf file perhaps. Because if something in SID MGMT was working in 4.1.6_2, then there is no reason for the same thing to not work in 4.1.6_3. Nothing in that part of the code was touched in either of those two updates.
