I tried your configuration on my OpenBSD 2.9 setup with build 85 and was
unable to recreate the problem.  Please check to make sure that you're
looking at the correct line in the snort.conf file (the number in the
parenthesis in the error message).  The way you're using it is correct,
so I'm not sure what to tell you.  Also make sure you don't have a path
issue by running a "snort -V" and making sure you're running the version
of Snort you think you are...
