I made the change to snort.c and it seems to be working ok.
--- snort.c (revision 148039)

if ( !ScReadMode() || !PQ_Next() )
/* If not read-mode or no next pcap, we're done */
/* Check for any pending signals when no packets are read*/
Is this likely to affect nfq? I also checked the 2.9.2 source tree and
I don't PacketLoop continuing if DAQ_Acquire fails with an error. I
assume it must have been fixed in a different way.
