#574: More exessive memory usage

 Component:  Bro      |    Version:  git/master
Resolution:           |   Keywords:  beta

Comment (by gregor):

 We now have a hotfix for that. Once the SSL connection is going encrypted
 (ssl_established), we disable the analyzer from script land. After that
 the analyzer doesn't do anything else anyways.

 If you want to see that "bad" behavior comment out the disable_analyzer()
 call in scripts/base/protocols/ssl/main.bro

 This solves (most of) the symptoms but not the root cause. Will open
 another ticket to address and track down the actual cause for 2.1

 Note though, that when running in bare mode with with some ssl event
 handlers, the problem will re-appear disable_analyzer() won't be used
