It seems to work here.  I have been for the longest time been using
clamdscan instead of clamscan in the clamav-wrapper, and I was under the
impression in the past that it would work and I have a vague
recollection of having tested it on .rar files.  However, clamdscan does
not extract from .rar files it seems even if the scan options for unrar
is present.  If I change my configuration back to clamscan in the
wrapper, the patch works on this test.

Is there a way to make clamdscan work properly from the wrapper script?
  Has anyone used it in this way?
