[Snort-users] $<ifname>_ADDRESS Refresh

Without digging into the code, my suspicion is that the
'$<ifname>_ADDRESS' variable available in the configuration files for
Snort 1.7 gets set at startup and never changes. That is, if the
address of your interface were to change, Snort would not know. One
would need to SIGHUP Snort or the like to get the new address of the
interface to be loaded.

Just want to make sure before I put a SIGHUP of Snort in my
dhclient-exit-hooks script.
