Description of problem:
chkrootkit ( www.chkrootkit.org ) give me this response:

Checking `lkm'... You have    13 process hidden for ps command
Warning: Possible LKM Trojan installed

The hidden process seems to be related to nautilus (examining /proc/PID missing
in ps output).

It *seems* to me a bug in ps, instead of a lkm trojan on my box.

If i run chkrootkit in init 3, it doesn't find any hidden process.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Running gnome
2.Running ps
3.Check /proc (chkrootkit does it automatically)

Actual Results:  ps doesn't see every process
