>             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
>          Issue Type: Problem
>          Components: Bro
>    Affects Versions: git/master

>             Fix For: 2.4
> Trying to activate a non-existing dynamic plugin gave a hard to understand error message and core dumps:
> {noformat}
> $ bro Bro::NOPE
> error in /Users/jsiwek/Projects/bro/bro/scripts/base/init-bare.bro, line 1: plugin Bro::NOPE is not available
> internal error in /Users/jsiwek/Projects/bro/bro/build/scripts/base/bif/const.bif.bro, line 33: internal variable state_dir missing
> Abort trap: 6
> {noformat}
> It also seems that {{bro -N Bro::NOPE}}, which is used by the {{testing/scripts/has-writer}} helper script, is interpreted as a request to activate a dynamic plugin instead of just query if a plugin exists w/ that name.  Not sure the intention: I just changed the helper script to grep the output of {{bro -N}} instead.
