Yes, I do
aide --update
mv /var/lib/aide/aide.db.new /var/lib/aide/aide.db
aide --check
If that reports a lot of missing files, I restart the process and it

This is the way I work around the bug.

I wonder if aide does not work better if the files are already in the
ernel cache. (The box has 1Gb of RAM, and the amount of file data processed
by aide is much smaller than that.)
