Default Amavis + ClamAV Problem

I followed the 'Perfect Server - Debian Etch' guide, and added the Amavis + ClamAV spam filtering guide, and everything worked awesome up until about a week ago. Now I have two processes each tacking 49% of my CPU power (Amavis using ClamAV) and nightly emails (pflogsum, mysql stats, etc) don't get through. In my inbox of my "root" user, I get "Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender" with a big long message
<> (expanded from <root>): host[] said: 451 4.5.0 Error in processing, id=31815-041,

directory) at (eval 44) line 268.; ClamAV-clamscan av-scanner FAILED:

Like I said above, everything worked great until about a week, maybe a week and a half ago and I haven't changed anything (it just sits under my desk chugging along doing what it's supposed to do).

Any ideas?
