Hmm, could you include some useful information about your setup?

What snort version?
What OS? (including distribution and release where applicable)
What kind of logging are you using?

As a quick guess, If you're using snort 1.8.3 on a Linux system with text 
mode logging, and the -d or -X command line switch, upgrade to 1.8.4 beta 
or hand patch the bug in the ICMP header size. ICMP packets under 4 bytes 
will crash snort if all of above conditions are met.

I'd also seriously consider switching to tcpdump logging while you're at it.
