You don't say what you are using to test.  Maybe this message is
triggering other content checks (for example Gibe would do that).  Also
Clam will detect an extra virus if an Iframe exploit is found.

The blue ares is the sum of 'Virus Scanning: Found x viruses' and 'Other
Checks: Found x problems'.  The yellow line is just the total of 'Found
x viruses'.  A quick look in the maillog should show which lines are
doing what.

I'm open to suggestions about how this could be made more sensible
(without wrecking anyones historic data).
