I found mention of this on the qmailtoaster list:
Check for the directory:
If it exists, move or remove the directory (I would back it up to be safe).
Shutdown qmailtoaster and make sure clamd stopped. If clamd doesn't stop, kill the process nicely with the default TERM signal (kill pid) and then check again. If it still doesn't stop, you may wish to kill the process with the INT or KILL signals (kill -INT pid or kill -KILL pid).
Myself, I prefer to just restart the server, to make sure clamd won't start-up automatically after a system reboot, but that's just me.
Also, keep in mind that clamd can ship and execute separately from qmailtoaster, so make sure your clamd is being started by qmailtoaster and not from somewhere else (init.d, chkconfig, rc.d scripts).
Hope this helps!
