On Friday, I emailed the author (Scott Beck) of Mail::ClamAV about these
issues, and he has released version 0.16 over the weekend.  This seems to
have fixed most of the failures in the test suite, but it a separate set
of residual failures at the end, related to the "scanbuff" interface onto
ClamAV itself.  I understand from the "clamav-devel" list that this
interface is deprecated (scheduled for removal at ClamAV 0.90).
