Virus and Content Scanning doesn't work

I'm using
- MailScanner 4.70.7 (installed by myself)
- with clamav 0.93.3 (compiled by myself)
- postfix 2.5.2 (compiled by myself)

The OS is:
xxx:~/# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.18-6-686 (Debian 2.6.18.dfsg.1-22etch2) 
(dannf at (gcc version 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Debian 
4.1.1-21)) #1 SMP Mon Aug 18 08:42:39 UTC 2008

I debug by myself the perl code, and I've noticed after the line

"$entity = eval { $parser->parse($handle) };"
in MailScanner/

The mail content should be exploded into the 
/var/spool/MailScanner/PID/MESSAGE.ID, and the loop only found . and .. 

That's why I've test a cpan command:
cpan> test MIME::Parser

And I've noticed some strange things, I've just closed the terminal, I 
cannot give out the exact output. I've just pressed "y" to the answer, 
and then everything was good... I don't know what's happen, MailScanner 
was working fine 1 month ago...

This could be help some guys in the same situation...

Best regards,
