Flags need to come before policy scripts.  It's interpreting "-w" and
"/home/zw/bro09171617.dump" as scripts to interpret.  I would've expected
it to stop by saying "error: can't open -w" (that's what it does for me),
unless you happen to have a file "-w" in your Bro searchpath.  Do you
have such a file?  Can you send me the tcpdump trace file, so I can see
if I can reproduce this?
