Hmm... I think the comment is out of date. These days the connection
summaries are generated by a connection_state_remove() handler in
conn.bro. I don't think a signature_match can be generated *after*
the connection_state_remove event (which is raised when the internal
connection state is flushed). So, seems there's nothing to fix. :-)
