[Snort-users] Snort CVS syslog oddity

The current CVS checkout logs a little strange (to syslog):

Mar 27 19:38:22 stahlw06 snort[2895]: Snort received signal 15, exiting

Looking good

Mar 27 19:44:58 stahlw06 syslog: ioctl(SIOC*MTU):Connection refused
Mar 27 19:44:58 stahlw06 syslog: Automagic MTU discovery failed. Using default 1500

These are bad, since the process name is "syslog" instead of "snort[pid]"
like in the next line:

Mar 27 19:45:02 stahlw06 snort[3859]: Snort initialization completed successfully, Snort running

So, only after initialization snort is logging "nicely".
