Mailscanner Clamd scanner module does not detect virus with /

I recently switched from ClamAVModule to using Clamd with MailScanner
I also use the extra clamav database MSRBL-Images and MSRBL-SPAM from
Some definitions in MSRBL-Images contain virus names with '/'
When clamd detects such an images it gives a message like:


However MailScanner does NOT detect the message as being infected.
Using the ClamAVModule scanner, the message is correctly identified as
being infected.
Probably this is due to some special path handling in
for the ClamD module.
