Considering that AVG is integrated INTO Declude, it should interface at
LEAST as good as any external scanner.
However, the virus bounce message "filename" variable is NOT set when a
virus is caught by AVG. Only the Virus Name variable is populated.

is reported correctly.
This is also evident in the LOG file. Here's the EICAR virus caught by AVG
in the .48 build. It only reports the virus name "EICAR_Test".
