Thanks for the offer, but I woun't need it. I have access to virtual
machines at work, and can easily install RHEL4 there, but what I meant
was that I have no production mail-servers running RHEL4, so the
testing there will be quite limited -- and getting our full mailserver
setup configured for RHEL4 is probably more effort than I'm willing to
put into this. Hope we can get some whoever still run RHEL4 mailservers
to test the clamav upgrade if they're interested.

I'll double check this problem on the next mailserver I upgrade, so that
I know exactly what files it was..
