_Most_ of the time. Despite some people including me, asking about 
/usr/sbin/unhide, one of fedora's forensic tools if I read the manpage 
correctly, no one has managed to come up with a way to add that file to the 
rkhunter database as a legit file.  So we get at least 2 emails a day mewling 
about it.  More trouble than its worth if it isn't going to be supported any 
better than that.
