Possible solution for the problem:
* Apply 'stdout' patch to clamav, which enables logging to stdout.
  Note that you have to modify the patch manually so that it won't 
* Start clamd via daemontools rather than usual init script.
  See docs/clamd_supervised/clamd-daemontools-guide.txt

In theory, you have to add at least 2 functions, first part is to save 
'last seen' timestamp of last record of log file, second part is to 
skip 'already seen' records which utilize the 'last seen' timestamp 
saved by first part.
Or, you can simply skip the records older than (current - 300secs).
