[clamav-users] Yet another synchronization failure!

A few days ago, I programmed some pre-tests so as to avoid running
freshclam until *both* the DNS TXT record and the first few bytes of
daily.cvd (obtained via curl) agree that there is a new version which
*actually* is available for download via freshclam.

It turns out that doesn't cover all the possible mis-synchronizations.

Today, my tests showed the new daily.cvd was indeed available (and
freshclam downloaded it), but the new bytecode.cvd wasn't *really*
available, so freshclam reported overall failure. Worse yet, the curl
test on bytecode.cvd says that the new one still isn't available one
hour later.

Our enhanced log follows. It shows that daily.cvd #24761 became
available by 14:18 (EDT), but bytecode.cvd #325 was *not* really
available even though the DNS TXT records said it was, and it still
wasn't really available at 15:18 (or even now, at 15:30).

I guess I'll have to enhance my pre-test to demand that *all* of
daily.cvd, bytecode.cvd and main.cvd pass the curl tests before
invoking freshclam. (Today, this would *any* updating even more.)
