Sounds like it's running out of swap space/memory.  Can you try
upgrading to this: 

http://snort.sourceforge.net/snort-daily.tar.gz

This is the latest version of Snort, 1.7+ (the plus is a lot of little
bug fixes).  BTW, how much RAM does the computer have, how big a swap
partition, and how many rules are you running in Snort?
