Hello, Community.

I've a problem with stdout.log.

I add some "print" statements in bro scripts (e.g.,
When I start Bro from the command line:
    *bro -i eth2 local *
it prints outputs of the print statements on to the stdout.

However, I start Bro from the broctl:
    *[BroControl] > start*
*    [BroControl] > exit*
then I go to "logs/current/" and try to see the outputs of the print
    *cat stdout.log*
the only results that I can see are:
    *max memory size         (kbytes, -m) unlimited*
*    data seg size           (kbytes, -d) unlimited*
*    virtual memory          (kbytes, -v) unlimited*
*    core file size          (blocks, -c) unlimited*

I expected that I can read the outputs of the print statements in the

The content of /logs/stderr.log looks like (only one line):
    *listening on eth2, capture length 8192 bytes*
This error message also appears as I start Bro by command line.
I don't think this makes any difference.

I have no idea what is going wrong.

Thanks in advance.
