Antivir ( http://www.antivir.de/ ) - a popular antivirus scanner
doesn't work on local file system in Freebsd 5.X


The result from FreeBSD 4.9 system:

Files are 0 and it seems that antivir doesn't recognize the files in the file 
system.I'v noticed this behaviour since the early 5.0 distribution. 

The strange thing about all this stuff is that antivir is working fine
on mounted file system, even it is FreeBSD 5.X on it, but still refuse to scan files 
mounted on / 
That's the reason I post this message here.
What is the difference between / and mounted file system, even if they are from the 
same
installation media..
