Problems sending mail after MailScanner install

I have a quick question just for my own clarification...  My MailScanner lint is below.  Far as I can tell it looks great, but I don't understand the line "Other Checks: Found 1 problems."  I see that pops up during the virus scanner check.  Is this line telling me the problem identified is the eicar test, which is what I should be seeing if that's the case, or is it telling me I have something loopy on the clamav side?  Thanks in advance.

If any of your virus scanners (clamav)
are not listed there, you should check that they are installed correctly
and that MailScanner is finding them correctly via its virus.scanners.conf.
