[Bro] Capturing and analyzing IGMP packets

I am wondering if Bro is able to capture and analyze IGMP packets ?

I tried to turn all filters off ("redef capture_filters = {};" at the end of

I built a very simple signature:

signature header3
  src-ip ==
  event "Header 3"

When I run with this on a trace containing only IGMP traffic, nothing appends
even though there is plenty of packets with src-ip == in the trace.

I tried running with the same config on a trace containing TCP, and there I get
the alarms.

Is there any way to get Bro to analyze IGMP packets ?
