Bug Description

Please backport rkhunter 1.4.0-2 (universe) from raring to precise, quantal.

Reason for the backport:
========================
The rkhunter version 1.3.8 which is included in precise can't be configured
in a way to support the symlink /dev/.initramfs pointing to /run/initramfs,
it always causes annoying false positive warnings,
see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rkhunter/+bug/883324 for details.
Especially for precise backporting the 1.4.0-2 version seems to be a good idea, as
precise is an LTS release and thus likely used on servers for a longer time period.

Testing:
========
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s raring -d precise rkhunter
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s raring -d quantal rkhunter

* precise:
[X] Package builds without modification
[X] rkhunter installs cleanly and runs
* quantal:
[X] Package builds without modification
[X] rkhunter installs cleanly and runs

Reverse dependencies:
=====================
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of rkhunter. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new rkhunter. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new rkhunter installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.

rkhunter
--------
* unhide.rb
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Suggests)
  [ ] quantal (Reverse-Suggests)
* unhide
  [ ] precise (Reverse-Suggests)
  [ ] quantal (Reverse-Suggests)

The bug you mentioned seems to have a minimal patch attached that fixes the problem.

This is much better suited as a stable release update instead of a backport:

quantal has 1.4.0-1 so it should already be fixed there.
