RESOLVED: F-Prot not being executed by MailScanner 4.66.5-3

I happy to report that f-prot is now checking for virus as well as
ClamAV.  I had upgraded to 4.67.6-1 and initially, it did not execute
f-prot although f-prot and ClamAV were detected.

I had rebooted this morning before leaving for the office and now I see
both anti-virus being detected by MS and being executed when I sent
through some eicar tests.

I'm unsure what was needed to fix the issue---reinstalling Scalar::Utils
or upgrading MS.  Whatever it was, I'm happy with the result.

Thank you all for your help and advice, especially to Res who exchanged
a number of e-mails with me and tried to help diagnose the cause.
