~ :> Because SIGHUP handling wasn't very good in v1.6? :) I'd recommend upgrading
~ :> to version 1.6.3, which is available at http://www.snort.org. Give that a
~ :> shot and let us know how it goes!
~ :Is there any reason this feature hasn't made it into the manpage yet?
it is in manpage actually (see snort.8 file):
The following signals have the specified effect when sent
to the daemon process using the kill(1) command:
SIGHUP Causes the daemon to close all opened files and
restart. Please note that this will only work if
the full pathname is used to invoke snort in daemon
mode, otherwise snort will just exit with an error
message being sent to syslogd(8)
Any other signal causes the daemon to close all opened
files and exit.
