so you have three Bro nodes? My guess is that the 0.9 one is causing the
problem you're seeing.

Mhmmm are you sure about this? My guess is that on the 0.9 setup you
need to add --enable-selectloop to the configure invocation. This
ensures that events arriving from a remote Bro are treated with the same
priority as observed packets. You can check whether that is the case by
verifying that USE_SELECT_LOOP is defined in config.h after running

If the two config.h files really are identical, I don't know what the
problem might be...

Let us know how it goes.
