[Logcheck-devel] Bug#614318: logcheck sends an email even when there are no entries after filtering

This has just started happening on one of our virtual machines running (VM) on an ESXi server.
Logcheck started sending me the same empty emails after the VM was rebooted early Feb 20th and some packages were upgraded
I don't know if it was one of the updates below, or if the reboot triggered it somehow (putting some other package that was
previously upgraded into effect).
The version of logcheck in question is:
||/ Name Version Description
ii logcheck 1.3.13 mails anomalies in the system logfiles to the administrator
I am also running logcheck version 1.3.13 on a number of other VMs that are not exhibiting the problem.
However these VMs have not been rebooted and haven't had the newer versions of the packages below installed on them.
They are in production use so can't mess with them at this stage.
But I can work with the VM that is exhibiting this problem if you need me to try anything.
The packages that were upgraded after the reboot were:

ii bash 4.1-3 The GNU Bourne Again SHell
ii bash-completion 1:1.3-1 programmable completion for the bash shell
