Can't Daemonize snort?

I've compiled snort, PF_Ring from metaflows, and daq-0.6.2

If I run 
/usr/local/bin/snort --nolock-pidfile -g snort -c /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -y -i eth2 --daq-dir 
/usr/local/lib/daq/ --daq pfri --daq-var clusterid=10 

it works and logs as expected. If I add a '-D', snort execution hangs. 

This was working as recently as a few days ago, then stopped working. I cannot run multiple instances, and I'm running 
into an issue were I can't run snort as user 'snort' so that Barnyard2 can read the logs, and if I run it as root, 
Barnyard2 can't see any records in the universal2 logs. 

Grrr, and it was working so WELL!
