my problem is not that the port number is null it is missing entirely
from the delimited output.  At the moment I only seem to be dropping
source ports so I suppose I could check how many tokens I get from ra
and set $sport to '' if there are less than expected but what happens if
it starts dropping dest ports too?

I'll have a poke at the code this afternoon and see if I can figure out
how ra manages to not output the port number.
