The following works for me:

     module Foo;

     event Foo::foo()
       print "foo";

     event bro_init()
       event Foo::foo();

Just as Jon suggested:

Event handlers just don't seem to inherit the surrounding module 
namespace, which kind of makes sense if you want to handle events 
generated in the global namespace.
