Performance problem after upgrading from SA 3.2.1 to 3.2.2

Yes, my ClamAV+SA package did it. It doesn't do it any more. I didn't 
make any other changes for that plugin, I just added the loadplugin 
line. So just comment out the line in v320.pre.

No need to even restart MailScanner, it will pick up the change in a few 
hours anyway.
