Bug#788908: rkhunter: Wrong logcheck rule for slow scans

Package: rkhunter
Version: 1.4.2-1
Severity: normal

The logcheck rule for slow scans in debian/logcheck.ignore.server is 
wrong, since it ignores the inclusion of minutes.  The Git commit 
aa1530e [1] is an attempt to fix the problem, but it does not get it 
right, because it is lacking the "and" word.  The correct rule should be:

^\w{3} [ :0-9]{11} [._[:alnum:]-]+ Rootkit Hunter: Scanning took ([0-9]+ minutes? and )?[0-9]+ seconds$
