I've got the same problem. eicar-virus get's removed correctly, all
other viruses are tagged as {VirusInfected} but are still beeing delivered.

My current ugly workaround: declare every virus as non-forging:

    Non-Forging Viruses = ./ e/ a/ i/ o/ u/ -/ r/ s/ t

Now all viruses do get removed ...
