hi,

i was playing around with snort 2.8.4.1 and 
discovered (probably) a bug:

when misspelling a rule like the following
(watch the missing ; after the reference)  

alert .... ( ... reference,url:www.some.url sid:12345678;)

the command snort -T -c /etc/snort/snort.conf did not
show any errors, while startings snort via init-script
(that calls  /usr/sbin/snort -D -c /etc/snort/snort.conf)
lead to a non-starting snort, due to this error.
