workaround for "file size limit exceeded" messages?

Is there a workaround for "file size limit exceeded" message issue that I'm
seeing in maillog whenever ClamAV detects either Worm.Mimail.C or Worm.Bics?

It appears that ClamAV is correctly identifying the virus but that extra
status message is causing MailScanner to get confused and (I think) letting
the virus through. I just signed up to the ClamAV mailing list, and at least
one person is suggesting that this is a MailScanner issue.

Any workarounds or fixes?
