Thanks Kai and Jules.
You were both pointing into the right direction.

In the end, it turned out that I had remaining pieces of an old tarball 
installation of clamav in /usr/local (bin and lib). The new installation 
(RPM based) was existing in parallel.

Challenge: The tools (clamscan and freshclam) reported to be 0.95.3 
though they were using /usr/local/lib 0.95.2 libclamav. This is, why I 
didn't recognize what was going on.

Now, everything is working just fine.

Very good work, indeed ...

Kind regards
