I did that several times, that was not the issue.

This was a good hint: it reported checksum errors. Since I explicitly
disabled checksums on the command line with -C, I added ignore_checksums
in bro.local and it worked. Probably I missed just the ssl_established
event that triggers the log write. This is weird, since the default SSL
analyzer makes use of it, too, and its log got written...

Thanks for your help!
