Ok, I read it and almost the only word extra is "recursively". So, my 
setup should work, but it does not.

My settings in clamd.conf:

OnAccessMountPath /mnt/data/data  # is data dir and linked to from 

OnAccessIncludePath /home/user      # is link to /mnt/data/rhome/user
OnAccessIncludePath /mnt/data/rhome/user

OnAccessExcludePath /home/maildirs    # is link to /mnt/data/maildirs
OnAccessExcludePath /mnt/data/maildirs

So, both paths are covered, and still I get notified of suspected 
malware under ../maildirs.
