Possibly a newb question, but "broctl status" is reporting bro is running,
but broctl restart reportings taht bro was not running because it crashed.
 Why the discrepancy? Also, log/current/stderr.log & srdout.log do not
contain any information regarding the crash.  Is this crash info stored
else where?
