Hmm, you seem to be right about that.  I have a low-volume mailserver  
which failed over to using clamscan rather than going through the  
daemon.  For my circumstances, this is OK, but it's not ideal.

Using gdb attach suggests the clamd is stuck waiting for accept() to  

(gdb) bt
#0  0x281af05c in __sys_accept () from /usr/lib/
#1  0x281a4960 in _accept () from /usr/lib/
#2  0x281a4a12 in accept () from /usr/lib/
#3  0x804f8db in acceptloop_th ()
#4  0x804dd46 in main ()
#5  0x804a47e in _start ()
