Panda not working

Anyone managed to get panda working?
I'm running MailScanner 4.38.9 on RH9 with the pavcl program file dated 1
July 03. I installed pavcl from rpm.
pavcl is in /usr/bin and I have the pav.sig signature file in
/usr/lib/panda. The .sig file is dated today, so the autoupdate is working.
The /usr/lib/MailScanner/panda-wrapper file refers to /bin/pavcl rather than
/usr/bin/pavcl so I guess there's one potential problem.
The /etc/MailScanner/virus.scanners.conf file contains the line:
panda /usr/lib/MailScanner/panda-wrapper /usr
There's the following advice in virus.scanners.conf:
# You can test a -wrapper script with a command like this:
# /usr/lib/MailScanner/f-secure-wrapper /opt/f-secure/fsav /tmp
# That command will attempt to scan /tmp using F-Secure. If it works you
# should see some sensible output. If it fails, you will probably just see
# an error message such as "Command not found" or similar.
I've tried the command:
/usr/lib/MailScanner/panda-wrapper /usr/bin/pavcl /tmp
Along with a whole load of permutations. I've tried changing panda-wrapper
and virus.scanners.conf but all to no avail. I just get "Virus: 0" as the
response, even though there's a valid eicar.com test file in the directory
that's being scanned and the equivalent f-prot command works fine. Running
pavcl direct from the command line detects the eicar file.
