Crash reports when no crash happened

Description

We need to make broctl stop sending crash reports when Bro was shutdown by a signal. It's confusing for users because they will get these emails sporadically when restarting Bro.

The crash report typically has the following text and no backtrace:

==== stderr.log
KILLED
received termination signal

Environment

None

OK, I've made the variable names less cryptic now. However, that last piece of code
with the ternary conditional looks about twice as complicated to my eyes (the
long variable names are partly to blame).

Yeah, you're right.. that works. I'll get it merged soon.

I'm a little confused.. what's with the topic/dnthayer/ticket1510 branch? Should that not be merged? Both ticket-1510 and ticket1510 branches look good to me.

Branch "topic/dnthayer/ticket-1510" in the broctl repo is the one that
should be merged (just ignore the other one).

Ok, merged. Looking forward to no longer getting useless reports sent to reports@bro.org!
