Hmph...don't know what I was thinking trying to debug that with both enabled. 
 Taking your advice, I removed the trap line and snort still died.  I removed 
the inform line and put back the trap line and snort runs happily.  In a 
sense that resolves it form me, since I'm happy with just the traps.  
However, I'm also happy to pursue this further with you or anyone else that 
is interested in more test results from my end.  Sadly, I'm unqualified to 
pursue this on my own WRT code debugging, but it would seem the inform 
response from my version of OV is causing snort to die.  BTW, something I 
left out of my earlier message is that our OV host is Win2k Server SP2.  I 
don't directly admin the box, but it's safe to assume it's reasonably 
up on the latest patches.

Thanks again for the troubleshooting advice and let me know if there's 
anything I can do to help further confirm/deny the existence of a bug.
