[Snort-users] SIGHUP results in exit(1)

I sent a SIGHUP to snort and it died:

Received SIGHUP. Restarting
Restarting /usr/local/bin/snort failed

yes, I've read the manpage which says, that this may happen if snort was
started in daemon-mode without full pathname to the program invokation.

But, this is, how I start snort:
/usr/local/bin/snort -i eth0 -u 1 -t /var/log/snort.d -c /etc/snort.conf
-d -D -p -P 4096 -v -l /

As you can see, I _use_ a full pathname. And I tried it also without the
-D flag, and it died too.

I use snort version version 1.7

Any ideas? Is this a bug?

kind regards, Tom
