[Bro] Is there a way to intentionally delay Bro's reading of trace file for something else to finish first?

Just to point out one thing to prevent future annoyance on your part -
broker is currently getting a re-write which includes changed python APIs.
The new version of Broker will be used in Bro 2.6 and the old API will no
longer work. The current state is not yet merged into master, but you can
look at topic/actor-system of the broker repository; the best point
probably are the tests in
It might be worth to take a short look at the new syntax just so that you
know how you might have to adapt things in the future.

The problem is that I don't know a good way to terminate this python program as soon as the Bro part finishes processing all the trace file. If I just terminate by using Ctrl+C, the current port will not be released and that prevents me from using it in the future. Do you have any good idea about how I should stop this listener and free that port as soon as the Bro stops sending more events?
