[Mageia-discuss] rkhunter errors

I've done a clean net install of Beta 1 and I'm getting lots of rkhunter 
errors. Most of them are resolved if I run --propupd on the file's 
package, but 3 of them persist:

Permissions for /bin/rpm - The x flag is missing for 'all'. This 
permission is different from mga1. Is this changed by the 'secure' 
security setting?

Group for /usr/bin/w and /usr/bin/who. These 2 have group 'ntools' which 
is different from mga1.

So I have 2 questions:
The problems resolved by propupd are probably due to an out of date 
rkhunter database. Should I report this as a bug or just wait for the 
databases to be updated?

And second, does anyone know which package is at fault with the other 
errors? Are the files correct and rkhunter wrong, or do the files have 
incorrect permissions and what package is responsible for setting these 
permissions incorrectly?
