[Clamav-users] ClamD stops on database reload - no errors

I am getting this re-occurring issue once every couple of days.

Clam reloads the database, and stops. No errors or anything.

/var/log/clamav/clamav.log

 From the log file: Tue Aug 4 20:40:48 2009 -> Reading databases from /var/lib/clamav Tue Aug 4 20:40:51 2009 -> Database correctly reloaded (607047 signatures) Tue Aug 4 20:41:55 2009 -> Socket file removed. Tue Aug 4 20:41:55 2009 -> Pid file removed. Tue Aug 4 20:41:55 2009 -> --- Stopped at Tue Aug 4 20:41:55 2009

This then causes my Amavis to fail as it cannot use the Clam Daemon:

Restarting the Clam daemon manually fixes the issue until it happens again.

Is there any advice to fixing this problem?
