 No. I dont get that error.

What I can note is that one time one ofthe servers got stuffed up for some
reason (the RAID array borked at the wrong moment or something) and
something weird happened to /proc or such. We actually didn't know this at
the time, so we ran chkrootkit (the backports.org version) and found a
similar error to your's. We were all frantic, checking the backups and
everything, until we checked the logs and saw RAID error. We rebooted the
server and re-ran chkrootkit and all was fine.

This certainly does not mean the same in your case, but just though you
might want to know.
