Why not upgrade your server?  To a *NIX or *BSD?  ;-)

Seriously, that's odd.  I know there are other folks on the list who don't
have anything like that happening.  Any of you Win32 snorters (Frank,
Michael, Chris, etc.) ever seen that or have any ideas?

Is this [0] the version you are using?  If not, give that a shot.  I don't
think it's the beta6 version...

Is there any way to run Snort under something like GDB so you can get some
idea of what/why/when it died?
