AFAICT, it never has... you were starting a new copy of snort that was running 
in packet dump mode...

did you have to create any links in /etc/rc.d or similar to point to 
/etc/init.d/snort when you set it up? you might want to check to see if those 
links are still connected and connected to the /etc/init.d/snortd script file... 
you might even want to remove those links and redo them with the new snortd name 
instead of the old snort name... i don't have that pdf any more so i don't know 
if there was something about the links or not...
