I can report a "me too" on this now. under CentOS4.4 ran
successfully for a lot longer than 2.6.1 did, but the problem still
occurred. I'm going to guess it took >24hours for the problem to
reoccur. As that will be in the 10+Gb range, I don't think a tcpdump
will be possible :-)

"ps" showed the same condition. snort was in a "R" state, and attaching
with strace produced no output - instead of the roar of output expected.
