since I have a problem with snort, after startup on FreeBSD 8.0 it 
does not deamonize. The startup command is

/usr/local/bin/snort -Dyq -F /usr/local/etc/snort/filter.conf -u nobody -g 
nobody -t /var/snort -l /var/snort/var/log -i xl0 -c 

The last I can see on the screen is

        --== Initialization Complete ==--

^C*** Caught Int-Signal
Run time prior to being shutdown was 240.557323 seconds
database: Closing connection to database "snort"

Snort is then running fine but preventing the rest of the boot process.

What's wrong?

Thanks, Helmut
