Bug description:
  Please sync rkhunter 1.4.6-2 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)


  * rkhunter on Ubuntu 18.04 produces messages like the following during
  its "shared memory segments" test (bug 1775939):

  /usr/bin/rkhunter: 14795: [: /usr/lib/firefox/firefox: unexpected

  * The script exits with an error as soon as it hits that broken check.

  [Test Case]

   * Run `sudo rkhunter -c --enable ipc_shared_mem` and make sure the
  check completes and doesn't end prematurely.

   * Note that this is not a perfect test because the failure only
  occurs when a suspicious segment is found. I don't know how to trigger
  that manually.

  [Regression Potential]

  * Very low. This is a single-byte bashism fix.

  * That package has been in Debian for more than 5 months without

  [Other Info]
