f-prot sit down? Causing problems with autoupdate

I noticed that we weren't getting email so tailed the maillog and nothing
was coming in so I did;
ps -auxw | grep -i mail
and noticed that the f-prot autoupdate was still trying to run. Does
MailScanner stop while the autoupdate is running?
When I checked the incoming mail queue there were plenty of emails but no
scanning was being done.
Anyway, I killed the autoupdate and now MailScanner is running again and we
are getting plenty emails.
Is this a problem with the autoupdate script? Perhaps a timeout if the
f-prot site is down?
