4.61.3 Postfix with Clamd settings?

I'm running 4.61.3 with Postfix.

Run as user/groups are set to postfix/postfix and incoming work dirs are
chown'd to postfix/postfix.

Virus scanning using 'clamav' works perfectly.

I have clamd installed and running (Suse rpm's) under the default
user/group of vscan/vscan.

I can't get virus scanning to work using clamd.  All looks fine from the
logs except it's letting through copies of the eicar test file that are
caught by changing back to clamav.

I'm sure it's a permissions thing, but if I'm honest I'm out of my
depth/level of knowledge with what I need to change with regard to
permissions or group memberships in conjunction with the
mailscanner.conf settings.
