Just to clarify what he's refering to is snort having "holes" in the
sequence numbers where it's has a dirty buffer that is used for
holding the stream packet data.

To test this, try seeing if adding a

bzero(stream_pkt->pkt, 2048); to line 3584 of spp_stream4.c and
running snort again.  If they all go away, it's packet loss. Try a
smaller ruleset, increasing your memcaps, or CVS HEAD.

A watched process never cores.
