It is possible to get more consistency without locking if node-1 sends a
message like "foo[0] = foo[0]" (instead of the "foo[0] = <data>" that I
assume it does now) to all other nodes and they execute that locally.
This adds complexity that may not be worthwhile though.

Anyway, after the discussion of #981 on bro-dev, I realized that this
workaround is also generally incorrect. Maybe #980 and #981 should be
merged since they're caused by the same thing that I initially
