Hrm...  I'm running Version 1.8.1-current (Build 82), on Solaris.  I've got it
on some older Sparcs (5/10/20) and I don't see that same type of behavior.

I no errors from 'nmap -sX -f -v <sensor>'.  I'm running that from an OpenBSD
2.9 box...  Snort ran just fine, no errors on the truss output.  Perhaps it's
OBSD related?
