Hi.

I'm starting a Snort+Barnyard+BASE deployment, and I found a few issues. 

First, the most scary. I noticed BASE stopped announcing insertion of new 
alerts, and when I checked:

Jan 11 08:10:32 fwext barnyard[2224]: FATAL ERROR: Out of memory (wanted 
3901751354 bytes)
Jan 11 08:10:32 fwext barnyard[2224]: Exiting

WTF???? 

There is such kind of allocation issue known?

The sensor software configuration is as follows:

Debian 3.1
Snort 2.3.2 (Build 12)
Barnyard Version 0.2.0 (Build 32), linked against libssl.so.0.9.7 and 
libmysqlclient.so.14


Thanks in advance.
