Generally, there shouldn't. It's hard to say what's happening without
seeing the packets. If you can send a small trace exhibiting the
problem and the Bro script/command line you're using, we can probably
figure it out pretty quickly.

And just to confirm what Dave wrote: yes, SYN/ACKs will trigger the
event as well, pkt$is_orig says which side the packet came from.
