Also, you have an old version of the rule.  You need to run sa-update to
update your rules.  The current rules looks like this:

meta     FS_REPLICA             __FS_REPLICA && !FS_REPLICAWATCH
describe FS_REPLICA             Subject says "replica"
header   FS_REPLICAWATCH        Subject =~ /replica watch\b/i
describe FS_REPLICAWATCH        Subject says Replica watch
header   __FS_REPLICA           Subject =~ /\breplica\b/i

The new rules add a more specific check for "replica watch" and also add
boundary checking to the "replica" match to reduce false-positives.
