I used to see that occasionally when the manager was extremely heavily loaded... but it's been a while (I thought Daniel fixed it?).  It was some sort of race condition in the command/script that check runs that causes it to not exit.

all the check script itself does is start bro with

event bro_init() &priority=-10

Are you still seeing this on 2.5?
