I was testing 2.7.0 (Build 35) today and ran into a couple of issues.
The first is fairly simple.

Initializing rule chains...
ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/bleeding-dos.rules (79): Invalid ICMP icode in
rule: >1<5
Fatal Error, Quitting..

The below thread on snort-sigs seems to address the issue, not sure
when the change of syntax occurred

[Snort-sigs] icode syntax (snort 2.7.0)

The next issue is a bit different.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x080bc81e in Stream5GetFlowData (p=0xbfe18e90) at spp_stream5.c:1277
1277        return (StreamFlowData *)ssn->flowdata->data;

If I comment out bleeding-exploit.rules, everything works fine. Snort
doesn't complain with -T either.  I am getting ready to head out, so
if anyone else can confirm the issue, that'd be great. Otherwise I'll
try to track down what rule is triggering the issue when I can get
some more time.
