I have an error in my Mailscanner --lint command

mailhost:~ # MailScanner --lint
Possible syntax error on line 19 of /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.conf
at /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/ line 1274

MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = clamavmodule bitdefender"
Found these virus scanners installed: bitdefender, clamavmodule

I have checked the file and all fields are seperated by tabs so I am a
bit confused.

Can anyone shed some light?
