Hmm reproduction is that it just happens.  But, here's how I'm running
things.  clamav-0.98.5-rc1 running as daemon.  Postfix 2.11.2 running as
daemon and clamav using clamav-milter to communicate with Postfix via
Unix socket.  (clamav-milter.conf below).  clamav-milter is not SUID.
It manages to work with Postfix by being a member of the group which
can accessthe necessary Postfix files.  I've had it working this way
for about a year now so I don't think there's anything too strange
about the setup.

No major changes in the configuration of either ClamAV or Postfix have
been made recently.  At one point messages were correctly marked with
X-Virus-Scanned and X-Virus-Status as dictated by the
"AddHeader Replace" directive in clamav-milter.conf.  At some point
during the beta development cycle, the headers just stopped being placed
into messages.  Sorry I can't be more specific as to when it began, but
I know it was apparent in 20140905.

Thanks again, Shawn.
