Hi!

Curiouser and couriouser...

Having the problem that every logfile I get is broken since saturday
I reinstalled libpcap-0.6.2 and tcpdump-362 and snort-(current cvs)
and found out with 'lsof' that snort did open the logfile more then
once in parallel (may be it writes to the wrong position?).

So I changed my rules to never use the same logfilename twice,
BUT NOW EVERY (of the three) LOGFILE(s) has the same problem:
- reading it with option '-dvr ...' a few packages ok,
then at the end
	'Snort received signal 3, exiting'

This is on a freshly installed SuSE 7.2, Kernel upgraded to 2.4.12.

I'm completely lost there...
