Hi Albi
INdeed, the two outputs are quite different.
rkhunter is telling me about the following two things:

1.) Scannning for hidden files -> WARNING!
* /dev/.udev.tdb
* /dev/.udevdb
* /etc/.pwd.lock

Question: You too have that outcome? As I have not changed default  
settings since upgrading to Hoary.

2.) Security Advisories -> WARNING!
* gpg: unsafe ownership on /home/user/.gnupg/gpg.conf

Question: How to understand that? I just set up gpg slightly, not making  
any own preferences.

Thank you for answering and explaining things I truly do not know.
