Now with twice the virus fighting power!

If it is, in fact, "checking it twice" like Santa, it's a performance hit you're taking.

Hello ..

Probably (hopefully) a 'cosmetic' issue? ... When I run lint, the output
shows clamd *twice* ? [snippert below]

Is there anything I need to change/check/fix/tweak ?

MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = auto"
