What is http_lite.bro?

In particular, the problem you are running into sounds like the packet-capture
filter isn't set to a value that matches the traffic you want to analyze.
You can see what the filter is by adding print-filter.bro to your command
line, which will cause Bro to print the filter and exit.

Also note that the interactive debugger (-d) has not been maintained for
a while and has some significant problems :-(, so unfortunately you shouldn't
trust it for tracking down script bugs.
