clamav getting uuencoded format error

I've seen some mentions of this in searching, but not really what to do
about it.

My clamav scan is now pretty quiet, except for a single message:

    LibClamAV Error: Message is not in uuencoded format

I believe there's a bug filed to resolve this, but I think a separate bug
should be that it doesn't print the name of the file that it's scanning at
the time.

Am I going to have to do a --verbose run to figure out what file is having a
problem with this?
