Actually, yes, you are the first one to ask for it which partly explains why
there is no backport for rkhunter.

I can do this myself if that's fine for you. I however would like to upload
the 1.3.8-10 version first which fixes the bug you have just reported (BTW,
thanks for the patch), as well as #644326. 

I also agree there shouldn't be any problem with the backport, hence I'll
upload it as soon as the new version enters in testing.
