What is causing this ?

The full message appears in /var/log/messages and looks like this:
mail clamav-milter: ClamAv: accept() returned invalid socket (Result too
large), try again

I get long series of this message on average twice a day at which time the
server gradually stops to process mail until I restart clamAV.
