It seems to be that certain characters do not work well in the
snort.conf.  If you set the password for mysql to something with
characters like !@#$%& it does not like them. And snort will not start
with that .conf file. I have not had the time to go one by one and find
the exact offending characters are but hope to soon.  Does anyone have a
list of these? Or maybe it is a combination or certain string that
should not be used.
