[Pkg-aide-maintainers] Bug#472692: 70_aide_dev fails on devices with # in their names

Package: aide
Version: 0.13.1-2

On one of my etch systems I have a device name with a # in it:

$ ls /dev/input/by-id   

This causes 70_aide_dev to produce an invalid line
in /var/lib/aide/aide.conf.autogenerated:

/dev/input/by-id/usb-Lite-On_Technology_USB_Productivity_Option_Keyboard__has_the_hub_in_#_1__-event-kbd$ RamdiskData

With the following small change to escape any # it works fine:

  find /dev -path /dev/.static -prune -o -print | \
     sed 's/^\(.*\)/\1$ RamdiskData/' | sed 's/#/\\#/g'
