[Snort-users] Snort exits on file upload

I can see in the 2.8.5 sources that ipq_read error does not result in
snort exiting. It calls ipq_perror and continues to read. Is this an
ok behaviour to go back to. It is not ideal but having snort die is
not the best solution either. Can I get rid of the break in
