Well where did the output at the bottom of your message come from? Sure
looks like output from rav-wrapper to me. Please do
         cd /tmp
         ls -l
         /usr/lib/MailScanner/rav-wrapper --all --mail --archive .
with some viruses and stuff in /tmp.

The output you have included below says that rav-wrapper is basically working.

Why do I feel we are going round in circles? I'm afraid I can't remember
the salient points of all the previous postings on this thread...
