I’ve been less frequently updating amavis-logwatch and postfix-logwatch (since I don’t host mail servers anymore).  However, I had already made a change in the source that covers this case, but it is not published yet.  You can add the line:

  push @ignore_list_final, qr/^Deleting db files /;

inside the function:

  sub create_ignore_list() {

to avoid these.  I have a few more changes that help more recent versions of amavisd-new.

You should be able to find the script (named a mavis) under logwatch’s scripts/services directory.  I don’t know where this will be on Debian.
