In version 0.10 running 'aide --check' gives the
following output when no changes were found:

--
AIDE, version 0.10

### All files match AIDE database. Looks okay!
--

Earlier versions stayed quiet when all was fine. This
change breaks scripts relying on AIDE keeping quiet
when all is fine. It also is a deviation from default
*NIX command behavior IMO.

I'd suggest to change this back to the earlier
behavior. As an alternative, an option to suppress this
output (e.g. --quiet) could be added to suppress that
kind of messages.

    -- whoops I just found out that this is obviously due to
    patch 849857 and hence will improve if the latest suggestion
    from johnkristoff (I'd suggest to assign the output to a
    islightly higher debuggingg level, though) is applied.

    Using the version in CVS you can use -V4 or lower to procude
    no output when no differences are found.
