[Bro] Bro Crashing on Reboot (Cluster-Layout)

I posted this to the SO list, but haven't received any responses, so wanted
to post here too.

Anytime I need to reboot my SO box, Bro tries to start normally but then
terminates and I get crash alerts.  They seem to point to something with
the cluster layout, but I'm not sure how to fix it or why it started.

I usually need to a couple rounds of broctl deploy, kill bro, then do the
same and it eventually starts fine.

This Bro 2.4 under Security Onion

See the crash log below--any ideas or help is much appreciated
