 yes, you can not hill -HUP snort, cuz when it will try to initialize
network interfaces, it will fail because of the lack of permissions (and
exec would fail for the first place too, because snort binary usually it
outside chrooted dir). Anyway, when proper `HUP' handing is implemented
these problems hoperfully would go away :-P
