#548: broctl brokenness multi-ticket
 Reporter:  seth        |      Owner:  robin
     Type:  Problem     |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal      |  Milestone:  Bro1.6
Component:  BroControl  |    Version:
 Keywords:  beta        |
 My updates to fix bro/broctl integration are in topic/various-updates.
 Those updates do not fix these issues however (and any help would be
 greatly appreciated)....

 - "check" command is broken.  The Bro instance that the check-config
 script starts up doesn't die.

 - Potential problem with node naming.  Names like this "nids-27A" would
 start, but broctl wouldn't know afterward that the instance was running
 (even though it was).

 - File rotation needs to be disabled when not running on live traffic (for
 the new process command primarily).

 - "scripts" command needs to be fixed.  Maybe it should run bro and print
 the loaded_scripts.log file to the output?
