Any chance we could get a new 64-bit build?

I'd start with updating to 0.99.2, however we borrow Fedora's -norar
sources but they haven't bumped yet (#1333949).

I'll retry with 0.99.2 when it's available.

Or you could rebuild 0.99.1 from the sources and see if that fixes the symptom.  If it does, you have a reason to reject Yaakov’s answer.  If not, Yaakov was right to disbelieve your hypothesis.

The build issue was a red herring, sorry about that. It turns out a specific file, xdate.exe, is causing clamscan to segfault. This is an old file, from 2012, used for date formatting, but it has just started causing problems.

I've verified that there are no viruses in the file (according to
