MailScanner restarting w/ virus updates when using SAVI

I just started using SAVI and I've noticed that MailScanner is now
restarting hourly instead of every 4 hours.  It seems that MailScanner
is restarting when it notices new virus definitions and since the Sophos
update script runs every hour MailScanner is restarting that
frequently.  Is this normal?  Something to do with SAVI being a perl
module and not a standalone program?  Sorry if this is a stupid
question, I guess I'm just curious...
