I am running in to a problem here on a Snort sensor that seems to be
segfaulting. For some reason this only happens with Snort 3.4. When
Snort 3.3 is used, the problem does not occur. I've tried (2) different
Linux distros at this point, both SuSE 9 and CentOS 4 -- the problem
occurs on both.

Snort does not log any crash details or information to the snort_log.

Has anyone run in to this? Does anyone know what the problem may be
attributed to?

 NOTE: Snort's default output has changed in version 2.4.1!
       The default logging mode is now PCAP, use "-K ascii" to activate
       the old default logging mode.
