 Here's a commit, [516f22e8367dc3dd50925bdc51063981ad53bad4/broctl], that
 didn't automatically make it into the ticket:
     Broctl fixes addressing #548

     - Log rotation is disabled when using the 'process' command to analyze
       trace files.

     - Fixed 'scripts' command to print out the loaded_scripts.log produced
       from a test run of bro with the same configuration as the 'check'
       Full paths to scripts are now always printed (this was optional

     - Fix some inconsistent rotated-log naming: part of this was because
       the 'post-terminate' script was manually calling the 'archive-log'
       script for log rotation/postprocess and passing it the rotated-log's
       filename instead of the base name (e.g. 'conn.log' instead of

     - Changed the 'post-terminate' script to only do manual 'archive-log'
       log rotation/postprocess in the event of a crash.  If bro terminates
       normally, it will have handled the rotation/postprocess.

     - Change the 'mail-log' postprocessor to mail alarm.log's instead of
       look for mail.log.

 Looks like all the issues mentioned in the ticket are addressed in `topic
 /various-updates` now, so changing to a merge request.
