One of two things could be wrong - either you have marked your shell
scripts as FILE which will produce that warning, or there is a bug in
the checking.  The message means that the way the file is being used
does not match the flags set in the entry in /etc/signatures.  I have
had a look at the code and I think I can see a bug in the checking
logic but I just want to confirm that you don't have your shell
scripts marked as FILE (if you used the gen_* scripts then this is
very unlikely)

Oops, thanks.  Will fix.
