[Snort-devel] Snort crashing on high bandwidth system

I've got a snort system that is seg faulting regularly,  I had it 
running 2.0.1 and updated to 2.0.5, it still has the same problems. 

It seem that when the backdoor rules are enabled we segfault.  I'm not 
positive that removing them fixes the problem but it seems to stay up 
for days without them and it craters with in an hour with them.  
Sometimes within minutes.

Any ideas?  I'm going to start putting some dev tools on the box to try 
and debug it, but it's a server ready for production.
