using the latest BETA version of MailScanner I get messages like this in my
logfiles when the body of the message being scanned is empty.

It's a cosmetic thing only, but there it is.  I'm using the latest CVS
version of ClamAV, so no doubt they changed something. Though, you never
know, it could be something I did.
