after updating to 2.8.2 snort crashes every now and then with a bus
error. With 2.8.1 I didn't have that problem here. Finally I got a core
dump today:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x00000000001de63c in Frag3NewTracker ()
#1  0x00000000001ddda0 in Frag3Defrag ()

#4  0x000000000013c5d4 in PcapProcessPacket ()
#5  0x00000000460bbb94 in pcap_read (p=0x433b5200, cnt=-203042, 
    callback=0x13c42c <PcapProcessPacket>, user=0x0)
    at /usr/src/lib/libpcap/pcap-bpf.c:154
#6  0x00000000001441ac in InterfaceThread ()
#7  0x000000000013b62c in SnortMain ()
#8  0x00000000001392fc in main ()

Hopefully I have some time during next days to track this down a bit.
It's a bit more difficult since last time because snort don't crashes
that fast but only after 1-2 days running here.
