Upgraded the Sophos stuff on our Linux boxes yesterday afternoon from
the Sophos April CD. Installed a later libsavi (
into /usr/local/Sophos/lib but noticed it also replaced "sweep" in

All seemed to be working well afterwards with viruses being detected up
until 04:00 today.

At 04:00 the Sophos autoupdate script ran to update the IDE files, etc.
