[Mimedefang] slightly OT: clamd.sock error

Hi all,

I'm getting 999 error from
message_contains_virus_clamd() and the following in
the logs:

Could not connect to clamd daemon at

This is intermittent and only happens on a redhat 8.0
box (I have mimedefang on a redhat 7.2 box with clamd
and have no problems).

Any ideas why clamd.sock is disappearing? 

Do certain attachments break clamd and cause it remove
it's own unix socket?

Thanks for any help, Chris
