An error message would also be kind of nice :).

The behavior I saw was that it was just "stuck" - bro didn't do anything, debug output didn't show anything and once one pressed ctr+c it shut down.

But - when attaching gdb, one could see the crash (null pointer dereference) - which then was quite easy to fix.
