[Snort-users] Why does snort on Linux report this?

When I run snort in non-daemon mode and shut it down with Ctrl-C, it reports 

Snort received 43 packets.
Packet loss statistics are unavailable under Linux.  Sorry!

What's missing in Linux that stops that working? Sounds to me like a bit of
a hole. I mean, doesn't that mean that anyone using snort under Linux won't
ever know if their system is dropping packets and therefore potentially
missing attacks/etc?
