     [ https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-831?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Johanna Amann updated BIT-831:
    Resolution: Won't Fix
        Status: Closed  (was: Open)

Closing - we will not be able to fix this anytime in the forseeable future because of the current internal architecture. Fixing this would be part of a major rewrite of the scripting functionality of Bro--and we will not forget about it; this is one of the well-known current gotchas of Bro.
