That's true, but in those cases a crash report is sent (which
includes the contents of both of those files, plus others), and
those files are also left in the
<tmpdir>/post-terminate-<date>-<time>-crash directory (this
directory contains both of those two files, plus others, and is
kept on the system until someone runs "broctl cleanup --all").

Also, those two files are not Bro logs (i.e., not in a Bro log
file format), so I thought it might be confusing to store them
in the same directory (with same file extension) as the Bro logs.
