This was a complete rework on the logs and scripts so the structure is 
completely different.  Unfortunately it wasn't just one of the cases 
where a field or two was added.

I don't think that assuming the order of fields is ever a safe 
assumption.  It's why we shipped a version of bro-cut with Bro 2.0.  We 
wanted to encourage people to refer to fields by the field name rather 
than the ordinal position of the field.
