Suddenly Seeing Clamav Errors After MailScanner Update

I am working on a FBSD 9.1-STABLE mail machine that's been working
fine.  After upgrading to MailScanner 4.84.5_3, we are now
suddenly seeing like this:

       Clamd::ERROR:: UNKNOWN CLAMD RETURN ./lstat() failed: Permission denied. ERROR :: /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/68340

Any ideas what might cause this?   I have fallen back to the previous
MailScanner.conf file wherein the problem does NOT seem to happen.
But, after diffing old and new config files I cannot see where
anything relevant to this might have changed.

Ideas anyone?
