Yes - may be.
That script has a time stamp from 2006, and these 7 years ago I didn't  
use the SBo clamav packet.

The error happens with 3.7.8 and 3.8.2
Slackware: self made, based on current.

mv: target `founderrorin/var/log/clamav/*.log,skipping.new' is not a
error: clamav:2 unexpected log filename
error: found error in /var/log/clamav/*.log , skipping


That error seems to happen with logrotate 3.7.8 and 3.8.2 (found on  
several installations). Typical: the nonexistent spaces in the "mv"  
It only happens with the "/etc/logrotate.d/clamav" script, with no other
