If clamd dies, it gets restarted by a cron job < 1 min later, so it's
not a big deal (MailScanner's logging is helful!). I'm just waiting for
a version that fixes it. clamd is running on the mail hub without the
extra sigs, and it doesn't crash, so nothing really nasty can slip by.
The I/O ERROR reported by clamd doesn't seem to have anything to do with
the crashes though, as they are happening at different times. It could
still be related to the same underlying bug, but until the 3rd party
sigs crash bug gets resolved I won't know.
Yesterday, all 3 of the I/O errors were on .xlsx files, so I'm likely to
assume it's Microsoft's fault. :-)
