[Bro] Problems with broctl

I have enabled cron from brocontrol and have this line in roots crontab:

0-59/5 *       *       *       *       /usr/local/bro/bin/broctl cron
> /dev/null 2>&1

On a reboot, bro never starts but I do get a bunch of these (5 minutes apart):

root    79339   0.0  0.3  91252  13940 ??  Is    2:10PM   0:00.08
/usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bro/bin/broctl

if I start broctl from here and try to do anything I get 'cannot get
lock'. A killall python and I can do a start however the
"/usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bro/bin/broctl"
processes keep on coming.

Am I missing something?
