Is there any chance that all the rules that are available have the to the
public have the snort.conf replaced with correct versions that don't have
the output database included as an option.

As an example the Registered Users Release of the rules labeled
snortrules-snapshot-2931.tar.gz still has a reference in the snort.conf to
the output database option. Might be a thought to go back to any of the
rules that are available to the public that reference a version of Snort
that doesn't support the output database and update the snort.conf to not
reference it. Just a thought... 

The registered rule packs are rule packs that were cut 30 days ago remember.

The subscriber rule packs have been updated to not include the database output plugin.
