Package: aide
Version: 0.11a-3
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I had an old version of aide and upgraded to this one and got the 
following erorr messages

# aideinit
Running aide --init...
36:syntax error:

36:Error while reading configuration:

Configuration error
cp: cannot stat `/var/lib/aide/aide.db.new': No such file or directory

OK, so I purged aide and re-installed.  I still get this message.
I'm not sure which file is incorrect as it doesnt give me a filename.
