To add insult to injury: a week or two ago I attempted to
contact him (also with no luck) about a nasty bug, when
using Sophos (and likely other anti virus software) AMaViS
was not picking up on the updates, that is the updated IDE
files in /opt/ide, and defined as SAV_IDE=/opt/ide were
not being used by AMaViS, however from the command line,
using the "sweep" command they were picked up fine, this
means AMaViS doesn't generally pick up on BO2K, etc.
