Thanks a lot Steve! The hint with "Silent Viruses" was the kicker. Now 
with the following the Eicar is correctly treated as a virus, cleaned 
and quarantined, and the message being delivered:

Silent Viruses = HTML-IFrame
Quarantine Silent Viruses = yes
Quarantine Whole Message = yes
Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files = yes

That doesn't seem have ANY consequences on the quarantining.
I have

Spam Checks = no
Spam Actions = deliver header "X-Spam-Status: Yes"

and the Virus quarantining works as expected.
