Tried upgrading from Snort 1.8.6 to 1.9 on a Debian 2.2.20 system
and I find that the eth0 interface enters promiscuous mode then
returns back to normal.

Options used are.

start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec $DAEMON -- \
   -D -c /etc/snort/snort.conf \
   -l /var/log/snort/ \
   -b

I also tried 1.8.7 and this also suffers the same problem I find with
1.9

Anybody seen this before and know the solution ?
