I'm running Snort 2.0 on FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE with connected to a postgresql
database for use with ACID.

The problem is it core dumps after about 4-9 hours worth of use. Is this a
known bug that I have to do something to fix. I can't figure out the problem
from the core dump, perhaps one of you knows.
