[Snort-users] Error: unable to open local.rules

I periodically HUP my snort (v1.7) to checkpoint the binary dump log,
but occasionally snort will die with the message: " ERROR: Unable to
open rules file: local.rules" in syslog.  At this point I have to rename
the local.rules file and make a new copy (mv local.rules local; cp local
local.rules).

Any ideas?
