Ya! rkhunter knows if files are prelinked and does accordingly. That's
not the problem, I was always getting proper cron mails till recently
and prelink is switched ON on my machine.

The only thing was that it started happening some days back. I thought
that it's some sort of mirror problem or maybe a new version will come
to sort this out. I even waited that someone may report this on the list
if it's a mirror problem;) But since no one reported anything and also
no new version got reported, I thought I better check it out on the list
myself.
