Snort will exit with error message if your network interface goes down
for the moment. I think that's what you may be having here. As for
the reason why you have this message, I can only guess that it might
be promisc. mode which overloads your card since it has to process more
data than it does normally. I'd try to get different card installed
and see if it improves the situation :)
