snmptd and alarm suppression

We have some traps from an application coming into the snmptd probe.  It's a scheduling application that will send a trap when jobs fail.  The problem that I'm having is that when there are multiple job failures around the same time the snmptd probe will suppress the alarms after the first and and increment the count of the first alarm instead of creating an alarm for each one.   Each job that fails is a different job and is indicated by a variable in the trap, but the snmptd probe is not seeing that and is considering them all the same traps.  Any way of preventing this suppression from happening.
