Ok, i try to restate better. ;-)

Why exim consider an av_scanner failure as an error for panic_log? Why simply
does not defer the message?

There's some way to 'lower' the error priority of av_scanner?

The question born by the fact that clamav is indeed a bed beast nowadays:
while updating the signatures (expecially on low-end machine) does not
respond, exim go in timeout and add a panic log.

I've tried now:

    av_scanner = clamd:/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl retry=5s

and i'll increase timeout to see if helps.
