I heard they corrected the problem you mention in current, but clam is
still way to slow compared to other scanners so I don't use it anymore.

Are you using clamscan or clamd/clamdscan? If the former, that's why it's so slow - see if you can switch. Also, what interface to your AV software are you using? Something like qmail-scanner that's a perl script is much slower
than qscanq or simscan, which doesn't have the overhead of launching perl
with each invocation.

One other hint - something I do for all my servers (I use simscan not, but
I've also used it with qscanq in the past) is put the scanning directory onto a ramdisk (I use tempfs these days, but a true ramdisk would be even better
if you can dedicate the memory to it).  It prevents the excess disk I/O
overhead that slows the process down, and since it's transient data anyway
that shouldn't get through in case of an error, the fact that the scanning
space isn't crash-proof is a non-issue...
