Hello Debian AIDE maintainers,

I am seeing the same issue on my server: aide worked fine on woody,
but I have recently upgraded to sarge and today I get a report 
where /sbin and /lib files are "added".

The aide report include the message
"Not enough parameters in db:14869"
so it seems as if the db was corrupted and the data about /lib and /sbin
could not be found anymore.

Here the head of the report (after the denoised summary):

 Output of the daily AIDE run (358 lines):
 Not enough parameters in db:14869
 AIDE found differences between database and filesystem!!
 Start timestamp: 2006-06-01 06:25:01
 Total number of files=15182,added files=313,removed files=4,changed files=32

This problem make aide rather useless for me.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
