Take a look in, at the TryCommercial function. There's a loop in
there that starts "while(<KID>) {" for each supported virus scanner. If you
find the one you are using for InoculateIT and do  a "print STDERR "$_"
just inside the top of the loop, it will dump to STDERR all the output from
the virus scanner.

Hope that helps!
