[clamav-users] Stop clamdscan from stepping on itself?

Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Clam 0.100.3+dfsg-0ubuntu0.18.04.1

When I run this:

/usr/bin/clamdscan -m -i --no-summary /

I get this error:
clamd: /tmp/clamav-ebbb3a980b0a96075cdf8b18191ad4a3.tmp/tar302: Access denied. ERROR

Is clamd stepping on itself (possibly because of the multi-threading)?  I suppose I could grep -Ev “^/tmp/clamav-“ but I figure some bright malware author will create files that use that naming convention and bypass my detection methods.
