ClamAv 0.96 is out

So, finally there isn't another solution to solve this "lstat()
failed: Permission denied" error than?:

1. Running clamd as root
2. Running clamd as the same user MailScanner runs ("Run As User" directive)

I even tried to assign defaults ACLs to
/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming to clamav user as rwx, but the same
problem occurs.

In my case the option 2 worked for me, but I do not feel so
comfortable running clamd as an user that isn't clamav.

Any other better solution?
