We are seeing failures (process terminates from daemon mode) when
a connection issue occurs to third party databases using DatabaseCustomURL

freshclam.log shows

nonblock_connect: connect timing out (30 secs)
Can't connect to port 80 of host www.securiteinfo.com (IP:

at this point freshclam daemon is no more.

This is ocurring with 0.98.7 and 0.99.beta1

Surely freshclam should not just give up and terminate due to a 
having connection issue.
