	Hello,

	I am running snort 1.8.6 on FreeBSD 4.5-RELEASEp2.

	I have noticed a file descriptor leak in Snort. Each time it receives a 
SIGHUP to reload the configuration, it opens a new bpf device, leaving the 
bpf it was using still open. After some reloads, it will run out of bpf 
devices.

	Regards,




	Borja.
