What does your itype option look like?

itype; will cause snort to crash unfortunately instead of printing a
warning. Noted and fixed.

One problem with snort right now is that the same parsing bugs can
appear in any plugin so we've got the distributed parser problem.

That architecture problem is on the block to be fixed
