It runs for about a minute, more or less.

We have alot of NFS traffic using UDP, that's where
all the "large UDP" events are coming from.

We tried turning off the database output, and we
tried "passing" the large UDP rule. Neither of those
stopped it from crashing.

We have another instance of snort running on a Linux
box on the same network (same rash of large UDP's)
with the defrag turned on, and it runs forever.
