Johanna Amann commented on BIT-903:

Sorry about that - the message was just the very short explanation why I closed the bug.

I looked at both of them and the newer one seemed to have much more interesting discussion, containing all the arguments that are included in this one. Hence I opted to keep the other one around. Still having this one here in addition---even though it is older---did not really seem to serve any purpose.

>          Components: Bro
>    Affects Versions: git/master

> Running with \-b (bare bones) disables processing by \-f.  Boy did this take me a long time to figure out :-(.
> Reproduce using the appended trace.  Invoking with *-e 'event connection_established(c:connection) \{ print "yep"; }*' will print "yep".   Invoking with that plus *-f 'not tcp*' won't print anything.  But invoking with *-f  'not tcp' \-b* _does_ print "yep".
