I just tested upgrading to this clamav from epel-6-testing, and can't
see any immediate problems. Any hints to what you expect there to be
of problems here ?

	# rpm -qa|egrep 'amavis|clam'

and amavisd finds both the primary and secondary scanners on startup:

	Mar  5 12:33:14 asav amavis[14306]: Using primary internal av scanner code for ClamAV-clamd
	Mar  5 12:33:14 asav amavis[14306]: Found secondary av scanner ClamAV-clamscan at /usr/bin/clamscan

Haven't tested any scanning yet, because this RHEL6 based mailserver
isn't complete yet..

I'll look into it, thanks!
