[Snort-devel] unified2 alert files with trailing period and no appended timestamp?

I'm investigating a client's setup and they are running Snort

The snort conf file has the following line:

*output unified2: filename unified2.alert*

Snort is being run with an explicit '-l' switch to set the log directory.

When I run a pcap thru the engine that generates an alert, the unified2
alert filename in the log directory looks like this (note the leading
period and lack of appended timestamp):


Is this a known bug with this version of Snort?  Any other reason why this
would be happening?
