kavscanner works fine detecting the eicar test file "kavscanner

I think the problem lies between the MailScanner default kasperskywrapper
and kaspersky.prf
I am no expert on the kavscanner for linux but two lines in the
kaspersky.prf seem to cause a problem:

With this object being blank I get an error "Profile contain wrong value for
property InfectedAction" when I run kasperskywrapper by hand

Obviously this tells kavscanner where to scan, and it is commented out so
MailScanner can specifically tell it what to scan.  If I run
kasperskywrapper by hand it yields
"Nothing to Scan.
You should select at least one directory to scan."

In the kasperskywrapper:

#ScanOptions="$ScanOptions -Y"          # no confirmations (will need once the rest
is right)

Perhaps a confirmation box is tying up the process since this is commented

Anyone have a customized and working kasperskywrapper and kaspersky.prf they
care to share?
