[Snort-users] snort not capturing packets for alerts (sometimes)

I am running snort 1.8.1 on a debian linux system:
snort -A full -c rules.126.96.36.199 -d -D -e -h 188.8.131.52/16 -i eth1
Most of the time it dutifully logs packets that caused alerts into the
approriate directory but every now and again when I look for a packet
log there isn't anything there.
The snort process is restarted every hour, I run a hourly perl script
which I adapted from snorticus.
In some cases out of a bunch of very similar alerts some get logged and
Any ideas as to what is going on or any hint as to how to debug this
