Sorry, but I've always used this configuration (taken from 
snort.conf.distrib) and all has worked properly for an year.

In any case I've tried to change this line to alert instead of log, but 
it doesn't work anyway.

These lines comes from README.databases

[log | alert] - specify log or alert to connect the database
plugin to the log or alert facility. In most cases you will
likely want to use the log facility.
