Do you have SPADE or tcp_stream on?  Those are the most often cause of
instability ( you can always try the CVS version ).  It's best though
to put snort under something like supervise to restart it instantly if
it dies.

I think Fyodor is working on snortdog which will (in the future?) do
this too
