Sorry - should have said:  I did change the group to clamav and I did 
change the permissions to 0640 as per the instructions.

I saw that an easy way out is to have clamav run as root, so I did that 

I'm still interested in anyone's ideas as I'd like to be able to 
successfully run clamd as user clamav, but I don't care so much anymore.
