Thanks for your feedback.
Indeed, there are many elements in this file.
It is surprising that the analysis is so long. I tested the file with 6
other antivirus (paid), the analysis lasts less than one second.
Do you think that it is possible for example to limit the number "embedded
items in this PDF file" in order to reduce the analysis time?

Seems same here :

clamdscan -m --fdpass *
/tmp/esploso_A3TH.pdf: OK

----------- SCAN SUMMARY -----------
Infected files: 0
Time: 59.406 sec (0 m 59 s)

Using clamscan --debug shows there is a LOT of embedded items in this PDF
file (2886 files extracted and scanned from this PDF).
