 That's a different timeout.  The timeout option that Jon was talking about
 is related to how long broctl will wait for python-broccoli events to
 return.    I think that the larger problem we need to ask is why Bro is
 taking so long to shutdown.  What are you finding that Bro is spending so
 much time doing in the bro_done event?

 From checking the commit Jon did, it looks like CommTimeout in broctl.cfg.
