Well, you have a very obvious error there.... I'm sure someone will
tellyou why this happens, but in the meantime, why not try switch to
using the much more efficient clamd scanner (as per the advice in the
For testing purposes, try switchng off virus scanning and see if that
helps and if so... go for clamd and see how that sits.
Other things would be to check why you get that error in Filesys::Df,
and what it tries to do on that particular line. It might be easily
fixed:-). I have a nagging feeling a search of the archives might help
you there;).
