Summary: 2.0.0-bug: no chroot

Initial Comment:
The snort manual states:


-t chroot


Changes Snort's root directory to chroot after initialization. Please 
note that all log/alert filenames are relative to the chroot directory if 
chroot is used.




When I run 'snort -c snort.conf -l /usr/snort/log -u 100 -g 100


-t /usr/snort -D', the chroot option have no effect. Snort is logging to


/usr/snort/log/* as usual. I was expecting an error stating that


/usr/snort/usr/snort/log does not exist (chroot-dir + log-dir).




This is reproducable every time.




Compiled and run on FreeBSD 4.7.
