As it turns out, that's precisely what the problem is. I commented out
both stream4 preprocessor lines in the snort.conf file and restarted
snort, and swapinfo reported 58MB of swap in use for over 24 hours. I
uncommented them, restarted snort, and swap usage began to climb again.
It was up to 1.6GB when I commented them out again and restarted snort.
Hopefully someone at snort can take a look at this and figure out where
the memory leak is.
If you need details from me, email me. This is a FreeBSD box running
dual amd/64 processors.
