 Sounds like this changes the behavior for unserializing files that already
 exist before Bro start up; which matters with remote prints (i.e., they
 now append). I don't think it's very important now that we have the new
 logging and remote prints are hardly used anymore so I'm going to merge
 it. But for the record, we could remember which files we have already
 opened once (by their path), and only open them in append mode.
