Speculating, I'd say it is having problems parsing the form of alerts 
that you have.  The alert format varies with snort version and with 
snort configuration.  It can be difficult to have your alert parser 
handle the different formats.

Note to the snort-stat.pl maintainer: several months ago I went 
through a major effort to modularize SnortSnarf.  Input is now 
separate from from storage which is separate from output.  You might 
want to use SnortSnarf's SnortFileInput module.
