It is already fixed in the new betas. Stable is usually released every other
month unless a large change warrants a release sooner.
Most people aren't using clamscan since it is the most memory and processor
intensive way to use clam with mailscanner.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
