Length is fine - try running
/bin/snort -A FULL -c /usr/local/etc/snort/snort.conf -deX -i dc0 -z \

( without the -D switch )

I think you will see a warning about "command line options overriding
config file logging"

Then try running without the -A FULL and instead only use logging
options in the config file.
