[Snort-users] Barnyard and log_dump

I'm trying to get barnyard-0.2.0 and snort-2.4.5 working on a new sensor.
I'm trying to get barnyard to log with 'log_dump' output.  It looks like I
have it configured correctly, but when events are triggered, I see a change
in the mtime of the snort.alert.* unified files from snort as well as the
barnyard snort-bookmark waldo file, but snort.out is never created.  I've
verified that file permissions are not the issue.  I'm sure it's something
stupid, but I'm stuck.  Any ideas?

$ cat barnyard-deep.conf
config daemon
config localtime
config hostname: convict
config interface: eth1
config sid-msg-map: /opt/snort/rules/sid-msg.map
config class-file: /opt/snort/rules/classification.config
output log_dump: /opt/barnyard/snort.out

$ /opt/barnyard/barnyard -c /opt/barnyard/barnyard.conf -d
/opt/snort/var/log/snort -f snort.alert -w /opt/barnyard/snort-bookmark -X
/var/run/by.pid -L /opt/barnyard -vvvv -R
