This is what I get now:

  ClamAVModule::ERROR:: RAR module failure:: ./i76EOX2r026872/eicar.rar

I have the patched

There seem to be no more surrounding messages.  To scan RAR with
MailScanner, do you enable "ScanRAR" in clamav.conf, as I have also
installed unrar 3.30 and it does unrar the file properly.
