Snort does allow comments in the BPF file, starting with # to end of line.
 If there is a syntax error, you should see something like:

ERROR: Can't set DAQ BPF filter to '
...
' (pcap_daq_set_filter: pcap_compile: syntax error)!
Fatal Error, Quitting..

What DAQ are you using?  Please send the BPF file that fails and the error
that you get.

But any ideas why snort fails to start if I add in a '#' to comment a
line??

i have no clue but it sounds like a coding error not allowing comment
lines i
the BPF file... only joel or one of the snort dev guys can tell us that...
or
possibly a code diver who can root around in the snort code ;)
