[Bro] Regarding Broctl cron

I've set up a cron job for "broctl cron", and verified that the cron job 
runs every 5 minutes. To test that the script works, I stop and watched 
for it to be restart by the script, but it's not happening.

I'm aware that the docs says the "main purpose of the BroControl cron 
command is to check for Bro nodes that have crashed, and to restart 
them". Though mine didn't crash, I'm expecting that the script will at 
least notice that it's not running and restart it.

Isn't that how it's supposed t work?

The installation, by the way, is on Ubuntu 16.04
