this sounds a like a out-of-memory problem. Could you try to
monitor the memory usage of snort until it dies? I guess one
of the mallocs fails to allocate memory. In this case it seems
to be part of the stream4 preprocessor:

#3  0x0006f058 in CreateNewSession ()
#4  0x0006cdc4 in ReassembleStream4 ()

In addition: Could you monitor the whole memory consumption
of your system? Are you using a database on the same machine?
Especially MySQL is a memory killer...

Best regards
