I think this is a "me too".  I've just noticed that 2.6.1RC1 appears to
work initially, but stops logging at some later time. I am just
upgrading to 2.6.1 to see if that fixes it - but your report implies it
won't. We're using both syslog and mysql output modules - and both stop
reporting - so that (plus your barnyard report) implies the problem is
occurring somewhere earlier on.

This is snort-2.6.1RC1 under CentOS4.4
