yes and i can see it maybe in that case... but i've not found the real specifics 
of the cause, yet... i also have to wonder if folks running snort on one machine 
and trying to test it from the same machine then end up leaving "-k none" in the 
startup options when they shouldn't...

BTW: i'll check my "offlist" folder again and see if there is another email from 
you in there... my offlist folders are read after my list folders ;)
