I'm slow right now. What mess around conf_done?  Do you think it's
possible that you have accidentally made local changes?

This is snort.c 1.8.2 release ( with some added line numbers )

308 if(pv.use_rules && !conf_done)
310     SanityChecks();

        /* initialize all the plugin modules */

#ifdef DEBUG
319     DumpPreprocessors();
