  Sure, you're right but i tried to follow the suggestion and ran into
  "trouble" so i prefered to switch to the "easy way" (to make Bro
  working)... :-)

  No, the problem with "timeval" is the biggest one i think, the others are 
  managed :
  - ARP.(h/cc)
  - bro.rc (i still have a litlle error with a "SIGHUP" but the script works). 
  It's not a bug (but a feature) so as soon as i have a correct "timeval" solution, i'll play with the DNS.
  Best regards.
