Hi Steve,

What are your command line arguments?  Can you run a backtrace on the
core file to see what's causing the dump?  See the latest BUGS file, or
FAQ "I think I found a bug in snort. Now what?" to find out more
information on how to diagnose these types of problems.

Hope this helps,

-Joe M.
