Run Windows98?  ;-)

Seriously...  More info is needed:

	Version of Snort
	OS and Version
	How do you start it?
	How do you know it was Snort that caused it (snort) to exit?
	What's the segfault msg?  ('gdb snort core' and then 'bt' would be
helpful--More info in the BUGS file in the tarball.)
	How much are you going to pay me?  (Oh, wait--Strike that ;-)
	--debug will give you a lot of info, but unless you know what to look
for, it will be just "a lot of output".  Hang onto the debug version, it
_could_ be useful.

And the most important:  Tip your bartender.  :-P
