[clamav-users] signature processing order

Hmm, that's strange.  I have noted exactly the opposite behavior.  My customsig.ndb sigs
only get applied after official ClamAV detection has run.  I know this because I am
always watching for my UNOFFICIAL FOUNDs to be replaced by official ones and I then
delete the related sig from my customsig.ndb.  It does not happen often, but it does
happen (official detection, I mean)!
