I may have been a bit hasty with this. It appears there's another issue with clamd.

I'm receiving reports of clamd crashing when attempting to parse email in an incredibly large (1.15 GB) Thunderbird mailbox file.

This particular report is from 0.98.3, but the user is reporting it still happens when testing against 0.98.4-rc1. I'll attempt to get a crash log from the user.

Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000117ffffff

I'm aware the offsets won't be too useful, but at least the method names ought to help I think.
