Hi Kris,
     Does it core right away or does it take a while?

Can you try enabling DEBUG mode (see the BUGS file) and let it run through
that?  Run snort like this:

Snort [optons] > debug.file

You can also try running Snort from inside gdb and see if you can get better
information on the backtrace from that, something really weird is happening
