rkhunter warns : "Warning: Hidden file found: /usr/bin/.fipscheck.hmac: ASCII text

Yes, fill a bug report so it is excluded from the warnings.
I agree that the file content is harmless.
Nevertheless, /usr/bin/ is for _executable_ files only, and having hidden files there is at least a bit strange IMHO.
I don't know the internals of fipscheck, but IMHO non-executable files (like .fipscheck.hmac) shouldn't be located in /usr/bin/ Marcus, do you want a bugreport about this? ;-)
