Something's not right here.  It's working fine for me from the newest CVS
update.  -T starts Snort, runs thru the init process and then exits.

  Snort exiting

Works just fine...

Are you running this from the command line?  Or are you trying to run this
from within SnortCenter?  I have the feeling that your issue is _not_ with
Snort, but with a combination of SC and Snort.  Start with Snort by itself
and then add any other things to it--Once you get Snort working.  :)
