When I include the rescue package list, seven samhain email alerts are

with samhain or live-helper?
it's not live-helper specific, since samhain will behave the same way
when being installed in any chroot. if it would be unreasonable to
install samhain in a chroot, i report a bug for it about respecting e.g.
the existence of /etc/debian_chroot and doing nothing if that file exists.
however, since there might be people operating things in a chroot and
having samhain in there, so using debian_chroot is not generic enough.
therefore, i've added a hack in git for live-helper to avoid samhain
initializing its db through postinst.
