 Reporter:  scampbell   |       Type:  Problem
   Status:  new         |   Priority:  High
Milestone:  Bro2.2      |  Component:  Bro
  Version:  git/master  |   Keywords:

 $mode=Input::STREAM, $name="issh", $fields=lineVals, $ev=sshLine]);

 event sshLine(description: Input::EventDescription, tpe: Input::Event, LV:
