I have troubles with clamd's log rotation.
The problem in that, clamd doesn't reopens log file after signal.
To repeat:
  cd /var/log/clamav
  mv clamd.log clamd.log.1
  kill -1 `cat /var/run/clamav/`
After this clamd writes to log
  Fri Mar 19 09:21:59 2004 -> SIGHUP catched: log file re-opened.
but doesn't creates clamd.log and continues write to clamd.log.1

Any suggestions (except clamd restarting)?
