[Mimedefang] BitDefender load average woes

I'm running BitDefender and ClamAV virus scanners through MIMEDefang.

All of a sudden BitDefender started consuming a huge amount of CPU.  My load average shot up from under 1 to between 6 and 15.

This happened on two servers simultaneously.

I disabled BitDefender (delete $Features{"Virus:BDC"}) and the problems went away.

Is anyone else having this problem?
