[Snort-users] No memory error

Anyone seen this before?  I've swapped out memory, reinstalled it, and it
still bombs after about a minute or so.  It works when using the "config
detection: search-method lowmem" in the config file.  I have the same
package (other than a couple rules turned off) running on another box with
no problems.
