Yep, nothing left running.  MailScanner starts normally, logging:

Jun 11 16:16:24 localhost MailScanner[16605]: MailScanner E-Mail Virus
Scanner version 4.21-9 starting...
Jun 11 16:16:24 localhost MailScanner[16605]: Using locktype = flock

five times (normal right?).

 From then on mail flows normally, but there are no added headers, and
no eicar stoppage.
