[Bro-Dev] #505: Invalid Unref crash

Hmm; good point.  I found it odd that the new logging framework code 
doesn't crash given the same trace under the same conditions, though.  
Also, since the crash seems to be in the core, I'd be a little surprised 
if it was the threading / logging code in there that was doing it.

I *did* just notice that the script path in that trace doesn't match the 
path to the bro executable; if the problem appears on a real interface 
as well, will re-run and generate a correct trace :)
