yes, it is, clamscan will timeout and worse, use up 100% of the cpu, so,
you won't even be able to log in and work on it.
we run a backup clamd scanner on a secondary box, listening to tcp, with
the backup amavisd-virus scanner pointing to it.
Easy to do in 2.7, but can be done with 2.6* as well.
basically, call clamdscan cli, pointing to a second clamd.conf, which
points to the backup clamd scanner.
