I am running latest-stable relaease on Alpha. When snort writes to 
remote Postgres DB an Alert (on IA32 redhat 7.3) I get an invalid 
timestamp error when I try to list anything in the DB. I saw some old 
bugs with postgres regarding how the 64bit platform handles timestamps 
vs. 32bit and some assumptions postgres made about timestamps where 
based on the 32bit timedate handling. Does anybody know if this problem 
has cropped up before and if so.. was it snort or the postgres libraries 
responsible. Thought I would ask before going down the postgres avenue.
