This has been mentioned many times now, this is from one of the first
hits on Google:

"There's no fix from Mailscanner yet, but I did find a workarround by
adding -U to the first line of the Mailscanner perl script:

#!/usr/bin/perl -I/opt/MailScanner/lib -U"

Since so many of you seem to have a "problem" with this, can't one of
you contribute a patch to Julian?
