We just built snort 1.8.7. When we use the configuration line "config
order", the program crashes. I've tested this with a rules file that
contains nothing but the order directive and it still crashes.
We are running Solaris 9 (we were running a previous version of snort,
1.7.?, on an older version of Solaris and it exhibited the same problem,
I just ignored it then). I've included the backtrace below.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation Fault.
