Gerry, thats a good idea - did you mean to attach the file? ;)

I'd be curious to know which version of Clam others were using when they
had problems.  In was using the snapshot 20030403.  I've since upgraded
to the snapshot from 20030625 (which is a few days after the 0.60
release) because I noticed the following in its changelog...

  * freshclam: fixed a typo - missing 2 in "nodb" in (should be "nodb2")
               one clause. That was causing a strange behaviour in some
               situations. Patch by Damien Curtain <damien at>.

Don't know if that was at all relevent to the problems we had.
