 I assume you have SELinux disabled?
 As a work around you can remove the selinux options from your /etc/aide.conf,
doing this automatically is probably the fix too.

 == Info. mainly for QA ==

 The way I reproduced this was to change:

   if (lgetfilecon_raw(line->filename, &cntx) == -1)

...into...

   if ((rand() & 1) || (lgetfilecon_raw(line->filename, &cntx) == -1))

...the other way is to disable selinux completely, and create a file without a
context. The fix is to not call strlen() when the pointer is NULL, on the line:

      db_write_byte_base64((byte*)line->cntx, strlen(line->cntx),
                           conf->db_out, i, 1, 1);

...I also premptivly fixed ACLs (I haven't tested them either way).
