I've got a little trouble here, from time to time I see the following 
lines in mail.log :

MailScanner[17637]: poster.pdf
MailScanner[17637]: ProcessClamAVOutput: unrecognised line "poster.pdf". 
Please contact the authors!

MailScanner (4.41.3-2) is running on Debian sarge , with latest clamav 
package from volatile : 0.87-0volatile1.

it's really annoying because I use logcheck, and I can't exclude that 
kind of lines...

Am I the only one who have this problem ?
