Hello Tim,

without actually looking into the analyzer source - if I am not mistaken what the message is saying is that 
bro saw a server hello message being sent without the client hello being sent first (which
is required by the protocol). 

I have not seen heard of this happening anywhere consistently, and cannot really
see how that usually should happen on a regular basis. Would it perhaps be possible to get a
trace of one connection that triggers this message?
