That's fine except that if any of the files in *.inc become corrupt then
freshclam will download a complete .cvd file into /var/lib/clamav and
delete the corrupt *.inc directory and MS will complain again.

Just add along side that entry above /var/lib/clamav/*.cvd with a space
between the two lines and it should work fine. Mine has been ok now for
~30 hours now and has restarted the MS children on update with no problem.
