I did not find any other error messages in log files. The following lines
appeared in the section for "kernel log messages" in daily email message for
Security Run Output.

> pid 840 (freshclam), uid 1#: exited on signal 11
> pid 875 (clamd), uid 1#: exited on signal 10

I am not sure what they mean exactly.

That's certainly strange.

Try starting the processes manually instead of using the rc scripts, and see
if they exit with an error of some sort.  Also, I seem to remember having
difficult with permissions under some circumstances, where the processes
couldn't write to directories they needed -- check that both clamd and
freshclam are running as the same user/group.  See if you're getting core
files anywhere (check /var/log/messages for coredump messages). Audit your
config files and make sure nothing is out of sorts.

Sorry I can't give you any more specific information, but I've not seen the
problem you're having.
